The paper presents a summary of thermal parameters as predictors of precipitation type at Loring AFB, ME. The material presented in this paper may be used to make an objective forecast when the input data is extracted from current observations and prognostic facsimile charts. The Caribou, ME, radiosonde data 0000Z and 1200Z is correlated against precipitation type that occurred at Loring AFB, ME. Thermal parameter combinations used in this study are 1000-850 mb thickness, 1000-700 mb thickness, 1000-500 mb thickness surface, 950 mb, 850 mb and 700 mb temperatures. Author
