Fire Weather Planning Forecast for Central/Southeast Illinois
National Weather Service Lincoln IL
445 AM CST Fri Feb 24 2017

.DISCUSSION...

A cold front will sweep eastward across central IL today bringing
showers and thunderstorms...especially in eastern Illinois where
some could be strong to severe. Strong south winds 15-20 mph with
gusts over 30 mph will precede the front along with mild
temperatures for this time of year, followed by a shift to
westerly winds and much colder temperatures after the cold front.
A chance of light snow will develop overnight into Saturday
morning north of I-70. Near to below normal temperatures will
continue through the weekend followed by another weather system
that could bring a return of light rain and snow Sunday into
Sunday night.
