National Weather Service SAN JUAN PR
414 AM AST Tue May 23 2017

.DISCUSSION...A general drying trend is forecast to continue for
the next couple of days as a dense mass of Saharan Dust remain
across the local area. RH will briefly reach 40-50 percent and
winds around 15-20 MPH can be expected at times. The limiting
factor is the condition of the fuels. At this time, most of the
fuels remain green due to the rains in early May. As a
result...fire danger will remain between low to moderate.
