Coastal weather is highly variable so it is always a good idea check conditions just before flying. There is now a weather station and webcam at the airport (as of late 2020)–this is the best bet for checking current conditions. You can also check Weather Underground, which seems to offer the most reliable forecast for the Gualala microclimate.
