FIRE WEATHER PLANNING FORECAST FOR NORTHWEST CALIFORNIA
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE Eureka CA
203 PM PDT Thu Aug 17 2017

...Gusty offshore winds along the upper slopes and ridges above 2500 feet
north of Hwy 299 for the next several nights and mornings....

.DISCUSSION...An upper level ridge over the region will promote
warm temperatures and low daytime humidities through Saturday. At
least a couple more nights and mornings of light to moderate offshore
winds can be expected over the exposed upper slopes and ridges north
of highway 299. This will be accompanied by locally poor recoveries.
An upper level trough will approach this weekend and temperatures
will likely level off or trend downward slightly as modified marine
air penetrates into the coastal river valleys. The forecast becomes
more complex early next week as a cut-off low develops offshore the
central California coast. We may be in store for another round of wet
thunderstorms and showers on Monday and Tuesday. Temperatures will
moderate to near normal levels early to mid next week.
