For the period January 1, 1945 to March 31, 1963 a calendar was outlined in which the weather situation every day was defined according to specific weather patterns. This was obtained from the studies of weather situations for this period by investigating not only the surface maps but taken into account also, the air flow at 500 mb level. The days of this period were separated for every specific weather pattern for every month. In this report the weather elements temperature, cloudiness, precipitation, wind, relative humidity, visibility, ceiling are for 16 Alaska stations for every specific weather pattern and every month. From these summarizations by weather patterns, months, years, and for the whole period a final condensation of the results was performed for every station. The Alaska area was divided into five sections. The results are tabulated in 264 22 x 12 tables. The Number of cases when a specific weather pattern occurred are shown on each table.
