FIRE WEATHER PLANNING FORECAST FOR NORTHWEST CALIFORNIA
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE Eureka CA
513 AM PDT Thu Oct 19 2017

.DISCUSSION...Increasing southerly winds are forecast for
today and will primarily affect coastal Del Norte county and
ridges above 1000 feet in Del Norte and Humboldt counties. Gusts
up to 40 to 45 mph are expected for these areas. Elsewhere,
winds are expected to be breezy; however, with improving humidities
and rain moving into the area there should be a minimal fire threat.
Wetting rain is expected for all areas with areas north of
Mendocino County receiving the most amount of rain. Additional
chances for rain will continue into the weekend, but should remain
confined northern Humboldt and Del Norte counties. By early next
week, high pressure will take hold of the forecast and bring warming
and drying conditions to the area.
