.DISCUSSION...A strong storm system passing by to our northwest

Gusty south winds to 55 mph are possible for coastal portions of
Del Norte County, with gusts to 65 mph for locations above 1000
feet for the Kings Range area, and across interior portions of Del
Norte and Humboldt counties. Widespread rainfall, some of which
may be locally heavy, will also overspread the area along and
behind the front during the next 24 to 36 hours. Another storm
system may bring periods of heavy rainfall and gusty winds in the
Sunday through Monday time frame. Higher elevation snowfall is
likely through early next week.
