FIRE WEATHER PLANNING FORECAST FOR NORTHWEST CALIFORNIA
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE Eureka CA
253 PM PDT Wed Aug 23 2017

.DISCUSSION...An upper trough will produce interior cooling on
Thursday. Warmer weather is expected for the weekend as high
pressure rebuilds over the area. Winds will remain light and
diurnally driven, however a weak front may produce robust northerly
winds over the coastal ridge tops tonight. Poorer RH recoveries along
with gusty northeasterly winds are expected for the mid and upper
elevations of zones 203 and 204 this weekend as a thermal trough
develops along the coast.
