...REMARKS...
last night spot weather forecast was right on for the detail I am
looking for.  Please use same format and discuss any site specific
details that standout to you.

This is a large burn . I really am
looking at rh.  Need it over 20
as low.  Also since a large burn
smoke management is critical.  We
are looking hard at mixing height
and transport winds speed and
direction.  The unit sits with a
south aspect full exposure.  Use
the Camp Merrill Raws site for
Yesterday and current Obs.  Would like forecast in 2 hour increments
from 1000 to
2000.  Also would like mixing height and
transport winds in that same
increments.
can we expect clouds moving in on us today, if so what time expected.
Please contact our dispatch center 770-297-3036 if you notice
significant changes throughout the day with weather forecast.
If new data comes in at 0600, wait till then to do spot.  Would like
it no later than 0700.
Thanks Jason
