...LOW RH AND GUSTY WINDS FOR MENDOCINO AND LAKE COUNTIES
TONIGHT...

A warming and drying trend is in store through next week.
For today, temperatures will reach near normal readings,
at around 80 degrees in the valleys. By Monday temperatures
will be well above normal, in the 90s. Humidity will also
steadily decrease starting today and beyond, both
during the afternoons and overnight, particularly at high
elevations. Daily minimum RH will be around 20 percent starting
today. Overnight northeasterly winds will also increase late in
the weekend through early next week, particularly Monday and
Tuesday. For tonight, RH will be around 20 to 30 percent, and
NE winds will be gusting to 20 mph in Mendocino and Lake Counties.
The combination of low RH and gusty winds will lead to slightly
elevated fire danger.
