1032 AM EDT THU JUL 28 2016

FORECAST IS BASED ON REQUEST TIME OF 1018 EDT ON JULY 28.
IF CONDITIONS BECOME UNREPRESENTATIVE...CONTACT THE NATIONAL WEATHER
SERVICE.

.DISCUSSION...UPPER LEVEL RIDGE ACROSS THE REGION WILL KEEP HOT
TEMPERATURES OVER THE AREA INTO THE WEEKEND. THE RIDGE AXIS WILL
SLIDE EASTWARD ON FRIDAY ALLOWING MOISTURE BACK INTO THE REGION
WITH INCREASING CHANCES OF THUNDERSTORMS THROUGH THE WEEKEND AND
INTO NEXT WEEK. THE MINIMUM AFTERNOON RELATIVE HUMIDITY VALUES
WILL REMAIN ABOVE 25 PERCENT. THE LOWEST VALUES EXPECTED WITH
TEMPERATURES IN THE 95 TO 100 DEGREE RANGE COMBINED WITH
DEWPOINT VALUES BY THE AFTERNOON FALLING INTO THE MIDDLE TO
UPPER 60S WILL RANGE FROM 30 TO 35 PERCENT. WINDS THIS
AFTERNOON WILL BE FROM THE SOUTHWEST AT 10 TO 12 MPH WITH GUSTS
UP TO 20 MPH. OVERNIGHT WINDS WILL REMAIN UP AT YOUR LOCATION
DUE TO A 30 KNOT LOW LEVEL JET. BASED ON THE LOCATION...EXPOSURE
AND ELEVATION OF BURN SITE EXPECT WINDS FROM THE SOUTHWEST FROM
5 TO 9 MPH AT THE SURFACE WITH SLIGHTLY HIGHER TRANSPORT WINDS.
DO NOT EXPECT ANY SIGNIFICANT WIND SHIFTS THROUGH THE PERIOD OR
THE DEVELOPMENT OF AN INVERSION. THE ONLY POSSIBILITY THAT YOU
COULD SEE A WIND SHIFT IN THE AREA WOULD BE DUE TO AN ISOLATED
SHOWER OR THUNDERSTORM THAT COULD DEVELOP. THE OUTFLOW COULD
BRIEFLY CHANGE THE WIND DIRECTION.

POSITIVE OR NEGATIVE FEEDBACK INCLUDING OBSERVATIONS TAKEN AT
THE BURN SITE WOULD BE GREATLY APPRECIATED. YOU CAN USE THE SAME
WEBPAGE WHERE YOU REQUESTED THE SPOT FORECAST FOR THIS. YOU MAY
ALSO CALL OUR OFFICE IF YOU HAVE QUESTIONS OR CONCERNS. HYSPLIT
OUTPUT HEIGHTS FOR THE NWS COLUMBIA AREA ARE 300, 750 AND 1500 METERS.
THESE VALUES ARE DIFFERENT THAN SURROUNDING OFFICES.
