FIRE WEATHER PLANNING FORECAST FOR PUERTO RICO
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE SAN JUAN PR
411 AM AST WED MAR 4 2015

.DISCUSSION...
UPPER LEVEL TROUGH WILL REMAIN CLOSE TO THE REGION TODAY. STRONG LOW
TO MID LEVEL HIGH PRESSURE RIDGE WILL CONTINUE OVER THE REGION FOR
THE NEXT DAY OR TWO. INCREASING TRADE WINDS EXPECTED TODAY...AS
SURFACE HIGH PRESSURE WILL BUILD AND SPREAD EASTWARDS ACROSS THE
WESTERN ATLANTIC. THIS WILL PROMOTE GOOD MOISTURE TRANSPORT AND
CONTINUE TO BRING OCCASIONAL CLUSTERS OF LOW TO MID LEVEL MOISTURE
ACROSS THE REGION TODAY AND TONIGHT. AVAILABLE MOISTURE WILL BE
SUFFICIENT TO AID IN AFTERNOON CONVECTION...MAINLY ACROSS THE
CENTRAL INTERIOR AND WEST SECTIONS OF PUERTO RICO. DRIER
CONDITIONS ARE FORECAST FOR THURSDAY AND DURING THE LATTER PART
OF THE WEEK...AS THE UPPER LOW TO MID LEVEL RIDGE BUILDS OVERHEAD
AND THE EASTERLY TRADE WINDS STRENGTHEN LATE TODAY THROUGH
THURSDAY. SO FAR...THIS EXPECTED SCENARIO MAY RESULT IN ELEVATED
RISK OF FIRE DANGER ESPECIALLY ALONG THE SOUTH COASTAL AREAS DUE
TO RAPID DRYING OF FUELS AND RH VALUES DIPPING CLOSE TO OR TO NEAR
THE CRITICAL THRESHOLDS.
