The National Weather Service is anticipating temperatures dropping into the teens across the interior of Humboldt County tonight and tomorrow with some places plunging into the single digits. “Local areas of black ice” are also possible on roadways, the service predicts.
Record or near record low temperature is forecast for Eureka and other coastal areas as well with Thursday being the coldest day. If the weather continues as expected, Eureka could break the previous record low and drop to 28°.
The service is tentatively predicting snow could fall in the interior with rain towards the coastal areas on Friday. The service suggests checking on the status of mountain passes if traveling out of the area at that time.

The National Weather Service has posted a Freeze Watch for late tomorrow night and Tuesday for the interior of Humboldt County. It says,
... a cold airmass will bring widespread overnight low temperatures into the upper 20s to middle 30s for interior areas of northwest California Monday and Tuesday nights. Frost will also occur in some coastal areas.
So cover up your sensitive plants, pull out the down blankets, fix a warm spot for your pets, and make sure your chimneys are ready for the fires you are sure to build. There's gusty, chilly weather in Southern Humboldt now. Tomorrow will likely be chillier.

The frost might be on the pumpkin tonight says the US National Weather Service on their Facebook page. “Low temperatures,” they say, “will range from near 40 F to the low 30s, with a few locations falling into the upper 20s. The areas with the best chance of frost will be in the valleys of southern Humboldt, interior Mendocino, and Trinity counties.”
So pull in those fuchsias and other sensitive summertime plants. Make sure pets have warmth and shelter. And, don’t forget to drive carefully if you have to be on the roads.
