Fire Weather Planning Forecast for PUERTO RICO
National Weather Service SAN JUAN PR
359 AM AST Sun Feb 26 2017

.DISCUSSION...A moderate easterly wind flow will prevail across
the islands today with a gradually drying trend of fuels expected
along the south and southeast coastal plains of PR. RH values may
briefly drop to the low to mid 40s in isolated areas along
portions of the southern slopes, but winds are expected to range
between 10 to 15 mph in most areas. The risk of fire danger will
therefore remain low today. However the overall drying trend
during the next few days will result in increased fire danger
across south coastal plains especially with the easterly trade
winds forecast to increase early in the week.
