Eight individual thermal parameters and five sets of two parameters from Bismarck, ND, radiosonde data tapes are correlated with the type of precipitation that occurred at Grand Forks AFB, ND, within three hours of radiosonde time. Thermal parameters tested are 1000-850 mb, 1000-700 mb, 1000-500 mb, and 850-700 mb thickness, and surface, 950 mb, 850 mb, and 700 mb temperature. The period of record is May 1959 to August 1964.
