Fire Weather Planning Forecast for PUERTO RICO
National Weather Service SAN JUAN PR
445 AM AST Thu Feb 23 2017

.DISCUSSION...A light to moderate east to southeast wind flow will
prevail today as an area of low pressure enters the southwest Atlantic
and high pressure moves north of the region. The prevailing winds
will continue to transport fragment of low level moisture across
the islands to support isolated to scattered afternoon shower
development across parts of the interior and northern half of PR.
RH values may briefly drop to the low 40s along the south coastal
plains where drying of fuels continue. However,with the expected
winds and cloud cover the risk of fire danger and spread will
remain low today.
