We are requesting this Spot Forecast in support of smoke management
planning for the prescribed burn we completed today.
Please report Forecast Elements in one hour increments.
Main concern 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.
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. The table in this mornings Spot Forecast and this afternoons
PointAndClick Forecast has a northerly wind early tomorrow morning.
Is that due to a drainage wind, landbreeze, or some other factor
4. When is the next rain expected at our location, and how much
accumulation should we expect in the first 24 hours
