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

.DISCUSSION...West-southwesterly winds are forecast to
strengthen across area ridgetops Wednesday night into Thursday
ahead of a cold front. However, RH values will be on the increase
as winds strengthen, which should mitigate a more significant fire
weather threat. By Thursday afternoon, widespread rain will spread
across northwest California, with storm total values near 2 inches
expected in Del Norte county, ranging to around a quarter inch
over southern Mendocino county. Lighter showers will then persist
through the weekend, before warmer and drier conditions return
next week.
