ECCDA DISCUSSIONS FOR YREKA AND MODOC CALIFORNIA DISPATCH AREAS
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE MEDFORD OR

ECC002-181630-
WEST YREKA-
DISCUSSION FOR WESTERN KLAMATH
316 PM PDT Thu Aug 17 2017


...Gusty northeast winds with moderate to poor relative humidity
recoveries on upper slopes and ridges in Fire Weather Zone 280
each night and morning through Sunday morning...

High pressure centered over the eastern Pacific and low pressure
over the Northern Rockies will continue to maintain northwest
flow aloft through Friday. At the surface, this will lead to
northeast winds and moderate to poor relative humidity recoveries
each night and morning through Sunday morning along and near the
coastal ranges. Elsewhere, it will be dry and hot each afternoon,
driest and hottest Friday afternoon. Dryness and instability
Friday afternoon will also lead to a moderate to high probability
of active wildfires becoming plume dominated.  This weekend the
wind flow aloft will become more southerly leading to a slight
possibility of thunderstorms. There is growing confidence that in
a more organized possibility of thunderstorms on or about
Tuesday.
