Fire Weather Planning Forecast for PUERTO RICO
National Weather Service SAN JUAN PR
342 AM AST Wed Mar 1 2017

.DISCUSSION...Showers continue in the east northeast flow over
the area, but taper off after this morning. The KBDI continues to
approach 700 at south coastal sites with Camp Santiago`s last
reading on Tuesday being 697. But the 10 hour fuel moisture was 13
percent and relative humidities will not reach critical levels
today. Additionally winds are somewhat muted on the south side of
Puerto Rico where conditions are the driest. Therefore consider
fire danger again moderately low. Conditions are expected to
worsen slightly during the week as skies clear somewhat and
showers decrease.
