FIRE WEATHER PLANNING FORECAST FOR NORTHWEST CALIFORNIA
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE Eureka CA
249 PM PDT Thu Jul 20 2017

.DISCUSSION...An offshore wind flow pattern will start to take
shape Friday night. Gusty northeast and easterly winds are
expected over the exposed ridges of Humboldt and Del Norte counties.
Poorer overnight RH recoveries are expected as well. The offshore
flow pattern coupled with strong warming aloft will result in a
significant increase of daytime high temperatures as well as
lower daytime humidities this weekend.  An upper level low will
approach on Sunday bringing a possibility for afternoon and evening
thunderstorms to the mountains. The threat for storms will continue
on Monday before drier westerly flow aloft develops by mid next week.
