...REMARKS...
We are mostly concerned with the inversion level and the chance of
any south winds pushing smoke over a populated area including the
freeway. Ideally a west to northwest wind pushes the wind out to sea.
We have new training props and we are still learning the effects of
the weather and the smoke impacts on the neighborhoods. Thank you for
helping with the forecast. We plan on burning in the morning around
1000 hours, we have a 0900 briefing prior if we could get the spot
forecast before the briefing that would be good timing. The live fire
training should be complete by 1400 hours.
