FIRE WEATHER PLANNING FORECAST FOR NORTHWEST CALIFORNIA
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE Eureka CA
414 AM PDT Fri Aug 18 2017

...Gusty offshore winds along the upper slopes and ridges above 2500 feet
north of Hwy 299 for the next several nights and mornings....

.DISCUSSION...An upper level ridge over the region will promote
warm temperatures and low daytime humidities through the weekend.
Light to moderate offshore winds can be expected over the exposed
upper slopes and ridges north of highway 299 for the next couple
of days and nights. This will also promote locally poor
recoveries. An upper level trough will approach this weekend and
temperatures will likely level off or trend downward slightly.
Early next week a cut-off low is progged to develop offshore of
the central California coast which may set the stage for another
round of wet thunderstorms Monday and Tuesday. Near normal temperatures
will return early to mid next week.
