Fire Weather Planning Forecast for Central/Southeast Illinois
National Weather Service Lincoln IL
349 AM CDT Tue Apr 25 2017

.DISCUSSION...

Dry air will remain in place today across areas west of I-55,
where humidity levels may fall to around 30% during the
afternoon. As southerly winds gust to around 30 mph in this
area, where 10-hour dead fuel levels are 5 to 6%, some fires
may become difficult to control.

After today, an extended period of wet weather is on tap for
the next several days. Showers and thunderstorms late tonight
through early Thursday may produce as much as 1.5 inches of rain
in areas near I-55, with around 3/4 inch in eastern Illinois.
Additional heavy rain is expected during the weekend.
