National Weather Service Eureka CA
317 AM PDT Thu Apr 27 2017

.DISCUSSION...Winter weather pattern will finally take a back
seat to more spring like conditions as a fairly strong ridge
of high pressure builds off the coast.  Gusty northerlies will
be observed along the coast each afternoon...while inland valleys
begin to warm to near normal or even above normal afternoon
temperatures.  No rain is expected for the next 5 to 7 days.
