FIRE WEATHER PLANNING FORECAST FOR NORTHWEST CALIFORNIA
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE Eureka CA
301 PM PDT Mon Aug 21 2017

...RED FLAG WARNING IN EFFECT FOR FIRE ZONE 283 IN TRINITY COUNTY
FROM 2 PM TUESDAY TO MIDNIGHT PDT TUESDAY NIGHT...
...Isolated thunderstorms possible over northeastern Mendocino
County today and Tuesday...

.DISCUSSION...Scattered thunderstorms producing abundant
lightning are forecast to occur across Trinity County during
Tuesday afternoon and evening. These storms are expected to move
fairly slowly, resulting in wetting rainfall. However, warmer and
drier conditions occurring during the second half of the week could
cause holdover fires to intensify and spread. South of Trinity
County, isolated storms are possible over portions of northeastern
Mendocino County. Otherwise, as previously alluded to, a dry pattern,
with temperatures near 100 F, is forecast to develop across the
interior Friday into the weekend.
