FIRE WEATHER PLANNING FORECAST FOR NORTHWEST CALIFORNIA
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE EUREKA CA
327 AM PDT SAT APR 18 2015

.DISCUSSION...
A RIDGE OVER THE WEST COAST WILL BRING DRY WEATHER AND A WARM
WEATHER TO THE INTERIOR THROUGH THE WEEKEND. WEAK OFFSHORE FLOW
ACROSS THE INTERIOR THROUGH THE WEEKEND WILL ALLOW DAYTIME RH
VALUES TO BE LOW...ESPECIALLY OVER THE HIGHEST ELEVATIONS.
HOWEVER...NIGHTTIME RECOVERIES WILL REMAIN GOOD. INSTABILITY
ASSOCIATED WITH A WEAK UPPER LEVEL DISTURBANCE MAY RESULT IN
A FEW WEAK THUNDERSTORMS OVER THE INTERIOR LATE THIS AFTERNOON.
