The paper presents an objective technique for forecasting wintertime radiation fog at Fairchild AFB, WA. Using data available by 1500LST, a technique is presented to forecast the occurrence or non-occurrence of radiation fog restricting visibility to less than two miles between 0000LST and 0800LST for the months November through February. Eight predictors were examined five combinations showed promise three combinations were used in this study. Predictor combinations used in this study are Surface wind speed versus temperature-dew point temperature temperature versus temperature - dew point temperature and surface wind speed versus dew point temperature. Period of record used 1952-1962. Independent sample used 1965-1966. Author
