...REMARKS...
Please use Fishlake D3 PT 3 for
weather obs.

Burning in the mixed conifer and aspen at higher elevations.  Temps
Rhs wind direction and speed are critical.  Cloud cover limits
results.

Looking for winds out of the SE, S, SSW, a NW wind is not desired.

Please expand on the discussions compared to the previous two
forecasts for this project.

Looking for a detailed 2-3 day discussion covering CWR/snow, any
frontal passages and sharp wind changes that could impact operations.

Looking for a 3-5 day broad discussion covering clearing trends,
weather patterns, and outlooks for prolonged drying, and or periods
of wet weather.

We will attempt to continue with the operations from yesterday.

Thanks,
Cory
