FIRE WEATHER PLANNING FORECAST FOR GUAM
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE TIYAN GU
1149 AM CHST THU MAY 5 2016

.DISCUSSION...RECENT RAINFALL OVER THE PAST SEVERAL DAYS HAS
REPLENISHED SOME SURFACE MOISTURE MITIGATING THE SHORT TERM FIRE
DANGER. HOWEVER...LONG-TERM DEFICITS OVER THE PAST FEW MONTHS IN
RAINFALL HAVE REDUCED THE OVERALL MOISTURE FOR VEGETATION.
CONDITIONS WILL BE VERY DRY FOR THE NEXT FEW DAYS WHICH WILL
NEGATE THE POSITIVE EFFECTS OF THE RECENT RAINFALL.
FORTUNATELY...WINDS ARE EXPECTED TO REMAIN BELOW RED FLAG LEVELS
FOR THE NEXT FEW DAYS WHICH WILL SUPPRESS THE RAPID SPREADING OF
SPOT FIRES. THE KBDI CONTINUES TO RISE INTO THE EXTREME CATEGORY
AND NOW STANDS AT 767.
