Fire Weather Planning Forecast for Central/Southeast Illinois
National Weather Service Lincoln IL
458 AM CST Tue Nov 21 2017

.DISCUSSION...

A cold front near the Iowa and Illinois border early this morning will
sweep southeast across central and southeast Illinois during today.
The front is mostly expected to come through dry, with just isolated
light rain showers possible from I-74 northeast this afternoon. A
significant wind shift will occur with its passage, as south to southwest
winds ahead of the front switch northwest in its wake with gusts of 20 to
30 mph today. High pressure will build across the area on Wednesday,
accompanied by much lighter winds and ample sunshine.

Smoke dispersion will be good today and poor on Wednesday. Mixing heights
are expected to be 3500 to 4000 feet today, and lower to 2500 to 3000 feet
on Wednesday. Wind speeds will be strong enough today to transport smoke
away from any burn sites.

There is minimal risk of measurable precipitation through early next
week.
