Good news for those worried about drought. Rain could possibly start falling late Sunday night (about 11 p.m. in the Southern Humboldt County area) and continue through most of Monday.
“The heaviest rainfall totals from 0.5 to 1.0 inch will occur across Del Norte and Humboldt Counties, but several tenths of an inch of precipitation will also be possible across Trinity and Mendocino Counties…ranging to a few hundredths of an inch in Lake County,” according to the National Weather Service in Eureka.
Currently, most of the Emerald Triangle is in Extreme Drought conditions. The amount of rain projected to fall will not be likely to significantly impact this.
Temperatures are expected to rise the rest of the week. By Thursday, temperatures could be in the 80’s for much of the Emerald Triangle with some areas–Ukiah, Weaverville, and Lower Lake area of Lake County possibly reaching into the 90’s.
