Fire Weather Planning Forecast for Central/Southeast Illinois
National Weather Service Lincoln IL
228 PM CDT Wed Apr 26 2017

.DISCUSSION...
A wet night is on tap for central and southeast Illinois as a
round of showers and thunderstorms tracks across the region. A
break in the wet weather is expected for Thursday, but enough
rainfall is expected tonight that at least damp surface conditions
will persist. Periodically wet weather returns for Friday and will
persist through the weekend. Some of the rainfall this weekend
will be heavy, especially Saturday night. These wet conditions
will not be conducive for burning, although smoke dispersion
categories may suggest otherwise.
