**Highs winds and fire danger Thursday**

Strong gusts of 35-50MPH will impact Illinois late tonight into Thursday afternoon. The highest gusts are centered across central Illinois and blowing from the southwest. High profile vehicles may have difficulty driving and outdoor furniture and decorations should be secured.

In addition, the combination of low humidity, strong winds and dry/warm conditions will make for elevated fire danger. The highest danger is in southern Illinois, but much of central Illinois will see some risk. Burning is discouraged.
