...Critical Fire Weather Conditions Possible Saturday Night
through Monday Morning...

.Dry northerly winds will spread through the northern Sacramento
Valley this weekend as high pressure builds from Oregon. These
winds will turn to the northeast and clip portions of Lake County
Saturday night through Monday morning. It appears that easterly
winds may also develop farther north over eastern Mendocino,
Trinity, and eastern Humboldt Counties on Sunday. The combination
of locally gusty ridgetop winds, low humidity, and dry fuels may
result in critical fire weather conditions.
