239 PM PDT Mon Sep 25 2017

...RED FLAG WARNING IN EFFECT FROM 3 AM TUESDAY TO 8 AM PDT
WEDNESDAY FOR GUSTY WINDS AND LOW RH ACROSS MUCH OF MENDOCINO AND
NORTHERN LAKE COUNTIES...

...ELEVATED FIRE WEATHER CONDITIONS ALSO POSSIBLE IN TRINITY AND

Warming temperatures and offshore flow will result in periods of
critical fire weather early Tuesday morning through early
Wednesday morning. Offshore winds are expected to gradually
increase through the night Monday, peak Tuesday morning, and
persist through Wednesday morning. Temperatures will also increase
to well above normal Tuesday afternoon, with low minimum
humidity. Poor overnight recoveries are also expected along upper
slopes and ridges, particularly Tuesday night. Winds will abruptly
weaken Wednesday, but warm temperatures will continue through
Thursday. A gradual cooling trend is expected late in the week as
a weak cold front moves through the area.
