With rain and freezing temperatures expected, winter is likely to kick it up a notch this week here in Humboldt. Time to bring in the goats, people. 

First up on the schedule, the National Weather Service here in Eureka warns that Monday night is going to be a cold one with freezing temperatures possible countywide. 

“A cold airmass will settle over Northwest California Monday night and freezing conditions will be possible across the area, even at the coast,” the NWS said Monday while issuing a Freeze Watch. 

As the week progresses, Humboldt is probably in store for an above-average sky dumping. The NWS warns that a “significant winter storm is expected to come our way Wednesday night and into Thursday, bringing heavy rainfall and the potential for low elevation snow.”
