FIRE WEATHER PLANNING FORECAST FOR NORTHWEST CALIFORNIA
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE Eureka CA
348 AM PDT Tue Oct 17 2017

.DISCUSSION...Dry weather with low RH`s will persist through Wednesday
as high pressure aloft dominates the forecast. During this time frame
winds are forecast to remain relatively light. Southerly winds will
develop on Thursday in advance of a cold front. Models have been
bouncing around as to when the rain will arrive. Current analysis shows
rain arriving to Northwest California by Thursday afternoon and evening
with showers and cooler temperatures persisting on Friday. There will
be additional chances for rain over the weekend; however, confidence is
not high that there will bring widespread rain. Areas north of HWY 299
and into Del Norte County will have the best chance for precipitation.
High pressure will start to build over the region for the latter portion
of the weekend and offshore wind flow may once again become a concern as
we head into the early portion of next week.
