Abstract : The association between sea-level and 500-mb patterns is obtained by analyzing the hydrostatic contribution of 500-mb height changes are also utilized to analyze the changing divergence fields in the upper troposphere. From this dual analysis of 500-mb changes criteria are established for development of new surface systems and deeping or filling of existing surface systems. The forecast aids are supported by various empirical studies and are illustrated by three synoptic situations. (See also AD17745)
