NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE EUREKA CA
433 AM PDT SUN APR 19 2015

.DISCUSSION...
INSTABILITY ASSOCIATED WITH A WEAK UPPER LEVEL DISTURBANCE MAY
BRING A FEW SHOWERS OR WEAK THUNDERSTORMS TO PORTIONS OF THE
INTERIOR LATE THIS AFTERNOON. OTHERWISE...A RIDGE OVER THE WEST
COAST WILL ALLOW WARM TEMPERATURES TO CONTINUE ACROSS THE INTERIOR
THROUGH SUNDAY. WEAK OFFSHORE FLOW ACROSS THE INTERIOR THROUGH
SUNDAY WILL CAUSE DAYTIME RH VALUES TO BE LOW...ESPECIALLY OVER
THE HIGHEST ELEVATIONS. HOWEVER...NIGHTTIME RECOVERIES WILL REMAIN
GOOD. AN UNSETTLED WEATHER PATTERN MAY BEGIN ON TUESDAY.
