...REMARKS...
Please report forecast elements in 1-hour increments.

We are requesting this Spot Forecast in support of smoke management
planning for the prescribed burn we completed today, and in support
of planning for a possible prescribed burn at a nearby location
tomorrow.  Please configure the data table so it includes the
forecast periods Tonight, Tomorrow, and Tomorrow Night.

QUESTIONS:

1. Please include a Fog Potential Statement for tonight, tomorrow
morning, tomorrow night, and Sunday morning, including Type of Fog
and Areal Coverage.

2. What are the chances of a seabreeze occurring at this location
tomorrow, and if so, what impact will it have on wind speed and
direction

3. After several days of full humidity recovery, we are beginning to
see a trend towards overnight RH topping out in the 85-90 range.
Coupled with the extended period of rainfree weather in progress,
this will promote residual smoldering at the burn site, which could
in turn have an impact of visibility along area roadways.  How long
should we expect this trend to continue

4. Last night the pressure gradient was strong enough to maintain
southerly flow.  Tonight the PointAndClick Forecast says wind should
stay above 5mph all night.  Can we be confident that southerly flow
will be maintained tonight
