Fire Weather Planning Forecast for Northwest California
National Weather Service Eureka CA
317 AM PDT Wed May 24 2017

.DISCUSSION...Temperatures will gradually fall to near normal
values through the end of the work week as an upper trough from
the northwest breaks down the ridge of high pressure. A shower or
two may pop up over the mountainous interior over the next several
afternoons with a slight chance for thunderstorms possible this
afternoon. Expect a moderate warming trend for this weekend as
high pressure builds over the region once again.
