Abstract:

From records and weather maps of 1200 GMT, total cloud amount and 13 objectively defined synoptic parameters were determined at 14 stations in Central and Eastern Europe for each day of the period 1956-60. Statistical correlations between totad amount and each single, or several, of these parameters were investigated by seasons with the help of IBM data processing. The re sults give a detailed survey about the state of sky over Central and Eastern Europe in the early afternoon and offer valuable aids for short- and middle-range forecasting of total cloud amount.
