FIRE WEATHER PLANNING FORECAST FOR NORTHWEST CALIFORNIA
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE Eureka CA
904 AM PDT Sun Aug 20 2017

...Occasional northeasterly gusts from 15 to 25 mph over interior
Del Norte County through this evening...

.DISCUSSION...Moderate northeast winds are forecast to continue
this morning in areas across exposed upper slopes and ridges over
Del Norte and Humboldt Counties. 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 during the evening and afternoon hours on Monday,
Tuesday, and Wednesday over portions of Trinity and northeastern
Mendocino Counties.
