...RED FLAG WARNING IN EFFECT FROM 5 PM THIS AFTERNOON TO 8 AM
PDT SUNDAY FOR ELEVATIONS ABOVE 1500 FEET FOR FIRE ZONE 203 IN

...Gusty north-northeast winds possible across
ridgetops in Del Norte and Humboldt Counties tonight through

.DISCUSSION...Moderate offshore winds can be expected across exposed
upper slopes and ridges over Del Norte and Humboldt Counties through
Sunday. These winds combined with poor RH recovery will yield elevated
to locally critical fire weather conditions. A cut-off low is forecast
to develop near coastal southern California early next week, and may aid
in thunderstorm development Tuesday afternoon over portions of Trinity and
interior Mendocino Counties.
