Fire Weather Planning Forecast for PUERTO RICO
National Weather Service SAN JUAN PR
422 AM AST Fri Feb 24 2017

.DISCUSSION...A light south to southeast wind flow will prevail across
the islands today with a gradually drying 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 5 to 15 mph in most
areas. The risk of fire danger will therefore remain low today through
at least Saturday. 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
by Sunday into early next week.
