Fire Weather Planning Forecast for PUERTO RICO
National Weather Service SAN JUAN PR
410 AM AST Sat Feb 25 2017

.DISCUSSION...A light south to southeast 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 5 to 15 mph in most areas. The risk of fire danger will
therefore remain low today through at least Sunday. 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 next week.
