...REMARKS...
Please report Forecast Elements in one hour increments.

Main concern today and tonight is the possibility of smoke and/or fog
impacting visibility on heavily traveled Gautier-Vancleave Road,
which is adjacent to the east side of the burn location.

QUESTIONS:

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

2. Will the pressure gradient be strong enough tonight and early
tomorrow morning to maintain a directional wind flow, or should we
expect wind to go light and variable or calm  NOTE: it appears wind
did go light and variable or calm last night.

3. What are the chances of a seabreeze occurring today at our
location  If so, what impact will it have on wind speed and direction

4. PointAndClick Forecast has a northerly wind early tomorrow
morning.  Is that due to a drainage wind, landbreeze, or some other
factor
