...REMARKS...
Todays prescribed burn was approximately one mile north of Interstate
10 and sandwiched between two main local thoroughfares with a fair
degree of night time traffic. Naturally, our main concern will be
possible smoke and fog issues thru the overnight period.

1.The forecasted chance of fog has increased from yesterdays fire
weather forecast thru this afternoons fire weather forecast. That
being the case, could you provide your best estimate on type of fog,
time of onset, and area coverage we can expect for the overnight
hours

2.For planning purposes for a possible burn tomorrow, will fog be
expected Friday night or Saturday morning

3.According to the zone fire weather forecast and the area tabular
forecast, overnight surface winds should remain somewhat active 5-7
and out of the southwest to west. Is there any chance of this not
holding true, and if so, what would be the most likely scenario with
respect to wind directions/speed
