FIRE WEATHER PLANNING FORECAST FOR NORTHWEST CALIFORNIA
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE Eureka CA
302 AM PDT Wed Sep 20 2017

.DISCUSSION...Cool weather with high humidities will persist
through the week as a cold upper trough drops southward from the
Gulf of Alaska. The rainfall with the trough has been fairly light
except across Del Norte county where significant wetting rain has
occurred since Monday. The light rain will end on Friday, however
the air will remain fairly chilly for latter September. A warming
trend is expected to commence this weekend and last through
the early portion of next week. Gusty east and northeast winds will
develop for the exposed coastal ridges as early as Friday night and
continue each night/early morning through early next week. Humidities
are expected to trend downward this weekend. In fact, an upper level
ridge will regain supremacy of NW California weather next week,
ensuring several consecutive days of dry weather with above normal
temperatures.
