Fire Weather Planning Forecast for Central/Southeast Illinois
National Weather Service Lincoln IL
305 PM CDT Tue Mar 28 2017

.DISCUSSION...

A slow-moving storm system will spread showers across central
Illinois over the next few days. The driest day will be
Wednesday...as only scattered showers are expected along and west
of I-55. Areas further east toward the Indiana border will likely
remain dry through the entire day. After that, rain will become
more widespread across the entire area on Thursday...before
gradually diminishing and coming to an end by Friday afternoon.
