The fire spits and spats, acquiring more attention as the night sky settles in. In military formation, white pelicans skim over the water effortlessly as they make their evening commute. An almost inaudible murmuring can be heard as fishing lines become entangled, and lures become ensnared in large smooth rocks. The air chills and is scented with charred marshmallows and burning cedar. Finally, as the fire fatigues, the indigo night takes over. The stars seem brighter when surrounded by family.

Weekend forecast:

A cold front times itself perfectly by arriving Thursday, and ushering in cool, dry air for the weekend. Do you like sunshine? Do you like temperatures in the 70s? If so, you will absolutely love the weekend weather. Expect the coolest day of the weekend on Friday, with a high near the 70-degree mark. Saturday and Sunday will have temperatures in the upper 70s. Plenty of sunshine all weekend as a high-pressure system relaxes in Door County.

All weather predictions are based in science with information gathered from the National Weather Service, and are subject to change depending on the weather.

Growing up in Michigan, Ryan Heise began keeping a fishing journal detailing the weather conditions at and can still recall his hometown weatherman’s name.
