Fire Weather Planning Forecast for Eastern/Central MO and Southwest IL
National Weather Service Saint Louis MO
350 PM CST Sat Feb 25 2017

.DISCUSSION...
Gusty southwest winds, combined with dry fuels, and afternoon
humidity values in the 20s will result in a heightened fire
danger once again Sunday afternoon for much of southwest
Illinois.  Otherwise, high pressure will slide east of our region
Sunday and result in a southerly return flow that will continue
into Monday.  Chances for rain will exist mainly for areas south
of Interstate 70 Sunday through Monday.
