Fire Weather Planning Forecast for Central/Southeast Illinois...UPDATED
National Weather Service Lincoln IL
856 AM CDT Thu Mar 23 2017

.DISCUSSION...

A quick disturbance moving through the region today will bring a
chance for precipitation to parts of Central Illinois and limit mixing
heights in general. This will cause ventilation rates to be much lower
as well. Ventilation rates will be much higher tomorrow, due to higher
mixing heights and stronger transport winds. However, the gusty south
winds could cause burning conditions to be unfavorable.
