...REMARKS...
Please report forecast elements in 1-hour increments.

Due to a problem with the national network of fire weather stations,
we are unable to provide observations for SHCM6 and TS629.

Main concern for this prescribed burn is the possibility of smoke
and/or fog impacting visibility on heavily traveled Seaman Road.
Allowable wind directions are North, Northwest, West.

QUESTIONS:

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

2. What are the chances of RH dropping below 28 at our location
today, and if so, during what timeframe

3. According to this mornings Area Forecast Discussion, with the
strong cold air advection, we should have little problem mixing down
winds today.  What are the chances of subsidence causing higher than
expected temperatures today

4. What are the chances of wind speed remaining above 5mph Monday
night and Tuesday morning

5. What are the chances of wind being outside our allowable
directions of North, Northwest, and West any time today, tonight, or
tomorrow morning
