The following is a statement issued by the National Weather Service Eureka California:
Conditions may become more conducive to wildfires over the weekend and early next week, due to the potential for lightning strikes Saturday followed by dry and windy conditions Sunday and Monday
After being asked where exactly the threat of fires would be amplified, the curator of the National Wather Service Eureka California’s Facebook page answered:
Thunderstorms will be most likely over the interior mountains, particularly Trinity, eastern Del Norte, and northeast Mendocino county. Heat and low humidity will be prevalent everywhere outside of the immediate coastline, and gusty winds will be most likely across higher terrain. That is a lot to digest, but in general, almost everywhere east of the immediate coast will see an increasing threat of fire weather conditions.
