The week ahead is expected to be “pretty nice,” a local meteorologist said Sunday afternoon.

There is no rain and no fire weather in the forecast for Humboldt County, said Jeff Tonkin of the National Weather Service Eureka office on Sunday afternoon.

“It looks like it’s going to be pretty nice in terms of weather-wise,” he said. “We are going to get clear skies and warm temperatures for Humboldt County.”

He added it’s “a very nice kind of fall weather pattern for us.”

For the next week, coastal areas such as Eureka and Arcata could see highs in the upper 60s and low 70s during the day with overnight lows in the mid to upper 40s.

To the south, Garberville is likely to see higher temperatures with highs in the low to mid-80s and overnight lows in the high 40s. Similar weather will be seen in eastern areas of the county with Willow Creek expecting highs in the high 70s and low 80s and lows between 45 and 49 degrees.

“(There’s) no rain in sight for this week and maybe not even next week,” Tonkin said.

He said the marine forecast is also expected to be light this week.

A small craft advisory is in effect through early Thursday in southern waters between Cape Mendocino and Point Arena.

“A Small Craft Advisory means that wind speeds of 21 to 33 knots are expected to produce hazardous wave conditions to small craft,” the advisory states. “Inexperienced mariners, especially those operating smallervessels should avoid navigating in these conditions.”
