FIRE WEATHER PLANNING FORECAST FOR NORTHWEST CALIFORNIA
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE Eureka CA
301 PM PDT Wed Aug 16 2017

...Gusty Northeast Winds Along Upper Slopes and Ridges above 2500 feet
   for areas north of Hwy 299 Tonight and Early Thursday Morning....

.DISCUSSION...Upper level ridging will build over the region promoting
warmer temperatures and lower daytime humidities through the end of
the week. One more night of light to moderate easterly flow can be
expected over exposed upper slopes and ridges north of 299 again tonight
and early Thursday. This will be accompanied by locally poor recoveries
as well.  An upper level trough will approach this weekend and temperatures
will likely level off or trend downward slightly as a more pronounced
marine layer develops. The forecast becomes more complex early next week
as a cut-off low develops offshore. We may be in store for another round
of wet thunderstorms and showers on Tuesday and Wednesday.
