(WSIL) -- Lack of rain combined with increasing winds will raise the risk of field fires through the weekend.
Winds will generally be from the south, lifting afternoon temperatures to around 80.
Fire risk will be with us until the next soaking rain.
The next chance of a soaking rain is in the forecast for Monday, but it's a chance, not a sure thing.
I will have the latest forecast updates on News 3 this evening.
