FIRE WEATHER PLANNING FORECAST FOR PUERTO RICO
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE SAN JUAN PR
632 AM AST SAT JUL 12 2014

.DISCUSSION...
STRONG SURFACE HIGH PRESSURE ACROSS THE CENTRAL ATLANTIC WILL
MAINTAIN MODERATE EASTERLY TRADE WINDS ACROSS THE REGION TODAY.
SAHARAN AIR LAYER WITH MILD AMOUNTS OF SUSPENDED DUST WILL CONTINUE
TO SPREAD WESTWARD ACROSS THE REGION THROUGH SUNDAY TO MAINTAIN
OVERALL HOT AND DRY CONDITIONS. LOCAL AND DIURNAL EFFECT MAY LEAD
TO SOME AFTERNOON SHOWERS AND POSSIBLY AN ISOLATED THUNDERSTORM
MAINLY OVER THE WESTERN SECTIONS OF PUERTO RICO. THE REST OF THE
ISLAND AS WELL AS...CULEBRA...VIEQUES...THE VIRGIN ISLANDS CAN
EXPECT AN OVERALL DRYING TREND. LATEST SATELLITE DERIVED DATA AND
MODEL GUIDANCE HOWEVER SUGGEST DIMINISHING TRADE WINDS... AND
CONSIDERABLY AMOUNT OF MID TO HIGH LEVEL CLOUDINESS...SO THIS
SHOULD MITIGATE THE RISK OF SIGNIFICANT FIRE DANGER. REGARDLESS OF
WHETHER RED FLAGS CONDITIONS OCCUR OR NOT OVER THE NEXT FEW DAYS...
OVERALL CONDITIONS STILL APPEAR TO BE EXCEPTIONALLY DRY ACROSS MOST
OF THE ISLANDS WITH NO SIGNIFICANT AMOUNTS OF WETTING RAINS EXPECTED
AT THIS TIME.
