...Isolated dry thunderstorms with gusty winds possible this
afternoon and evening for zone 283...

...Isolated thunderstorms with gusty winds possible through late
Tuesday...for zones 201...203...204...211...and 283...

.DISCUSSION...An offshore flow pattern coupled with strong
warming aloft will continue to bring hot daytime temperatures as
well as lower daytime humidities today for the interior. An
upper-level low will bring the possibility for thunderstorms
this afternoon and evening for most of Del Norte and northern
Humboldt counties, with a few dry thunderstorms possible across
northern Trinity County. The possibility for a few thunderstorms
will persist through early Wednesday, periodically expanding
southward through eastern Humboldt and northeastern Mendocino
counties, and all of Trinity County. Any precipitation potential
will end for the remainder of the week as drier air returns.
