FIRE WEATHER PLANNING FORECAST FOR PUERTO RICO
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE SAN JUAN PR
439 AM AST THU MAR 5 2015

.DISCUSSION...STRONG MID TO UPPER LEVEL HIGH PRESSURE RIDGE
BUILDING ACROSS THE REGION WILL SUPPORT UPPER LEVEL CONVERGENCE
AND RAPID DRYING OF FUELS TODAY AND FRIDAY ESPECIALLY ACROSS THE
SOUTH COASTAL PLAINS. TRADE WINDS WILL INCREASE EVEN MORE TODAY...
AS SURFACE HIGH PRESSURE WILL BUILD AND SPREAD EASTWARDS ACROSS
THE WESTERN ATLANTIC. THIS EXPECTED SCENARIO MAY RESULT IN
ELEVATED RISK OF FIRE DANGER ALONG THE SOUTH COASTAL AREAS DUE TO
RAPID DRYING OF FUELS AND MINIMUM RELATIVE HUMIDITY VALUES NEAR OR
BELOW CRITICAL LEVELS IN SOME AREAS. THEREFORE A FIRE DANGER
STATEMENT WAS ISSUE THIS MORNING FOR PORTIONS OF THE SOUTH COASTAL
PLAINS AND MONA ISLAND. REFERS TO THE RFDSJU PRODUCT ISSUED BY THE
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE FORECAST OFFICE IN SAN JUAN PR.
