FIRE WEATHER PLANNING FORECAST FOR PUERTO RICO
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE SAN JUAN PR
556 AM AST MON MAR 2 2015

.DISCUSSION...HIGH PRESSURE RIDGE ALOFT WILL SLIGHTLY WEAKEN TODAY
AS A SHORT WAVE TROUGH MOVES AND BECOMES AMPLIFIES ACROSS THE CENTRAL
ATLANTIC. THIS WILL HELP TO PROMOTE GOOD MOISTURE TRANSPORT AND
INSTABILITY WITH SHOWERS AND POSSIBLE ISOLATED THUNDERSTORMS DURING
THE AFTERNOON. DRIER CONDITIONS ARE HOWEVER EXPECTED DURING THE
LATTER PART OF THE WEEK AS THE UPPER TROF AXIS SHIFTS SOUTH AND
EAST OF THE REGION...AND THE UPPER RIDGE BUILDS OVERHEAD ONCE
AGAIN. IN ADDITION... THE PREVAILING EAST NORTHEAST TRADE WINDS
ARE FORECAST TO STRENGTHEN BY LATE TUESDAY THROUGH THURSDAY. THIS
WILL RESULT IN ELEVATED RISK OF FIRE WEATHER CONDITIONS ALONG THE
SOUTH COASTAL AREAS DUE TO ENHANCED WARMING...RAPID DRYING OF
FUELS AND RH VALUES DIPPING TO NEAR THE CRITICAL THRESHOLDS IN
SOME AREAS.
