Fire Weather Planning Forecast for Central/Southeast Illinois
National Weather Service Lincoln IL
251 PM CST Wed Feb 22 2017

.DISCUSSION...

As a cold front settles over central Illinois late tonight, winds
will shift to the northeast. However, the front will begin to lift
northward on Thursday as a warm front, resulting in winds becoming
southerly again south of I-72. Scattered showers and a few
thunderstorms will be possible in the afternoon with this front,
lingering into Thursday night as the front pushes north. By Friday,
stronger southerly winds will bring one last gasp of unseasonably
warm air into the region. As a strong cold front pushes across the
state, a line of thunderstorms will develop, with the best rain
chances east of I-55. Temperatures will be sharply colder for
the weekend, and some precipitation wrapping around the parent
low pressure may be in the form of some light snow on Saturday.
