Fire Weather Planning Forecast for Northwest California

354 AM PST Wed Dec 13 2017

.DISCUSSION...Dry weather will continue as high pressure holds its regime
over the west coast. Look for mild afternoons and cool mornings with
interior valleys being the coldest locations. Friday a weak and dry system
will usher cooler air in. This will mainly cool off the ridges. Winds will
also increase along the coast behind this system.
