Fire Weather Planning Forecast for Central/Southeast Illinois
National Weather Service Lincoln IL
254 PM CDT Sat Mar 25 2017

.DISCUSSION...

A slow moving storm system will track northeast overnight, and
will be over northern Illinois by midday Sunday. Periods of
showers will continue through Sunday morning, then diminish
from the south as the low pulls away from the system. The
period of dry weather will be short though, as another
storm system will be following behind, spreading rain back
into central Illinois on Monday. A fairly wet pattern is
shaping up for much of the new week, with Tuesday and Wednesday
looking most likely to have any substantial dry weather.
