Fire Weather Planning Forecast for Central/Southeast Illinois
National Weather Service Lincoln IL
412 AM CDT Thu Apr 27 2017

.DISCUSSION...

As low pressure lifts northeast early this morning, any remaining
rain will come to an end before midday. However, while smoke dispersal
rates will be favorable, the damp ground will cause difficulty with
any burns.

This will be a short lived dry spell, as additional rain begins to
move in from the west late tonight. The most likely time frame for
rainfall will be from Friday night into Sunday evening, when totals
in excess of 3 inches are likely across central and southeast Illinois.
