Fire Weather Planning Forecast for Central/Southeast Illinois
National Weather Service Lincoln IL
305 PM CDT Thu Apr 26 2018

.DISCUSSION...
Very favorable burning conditions are expected across central and
southeast Illinois through the weekend. A couple cold fronts will
come through the region during the period, the first tonight and
the second Friday night. These fronts will come through dry for
the most part, although parts of central Illinois may see a light
shower or sprinkle Friday afternoon into Friday night. High mixing
heights and gusty winds will provide very good smoke dispersion.
Relative Humidity values are also expected to be low each
afternoon into early next week.
