Pagination or Media Count:
Four individual thermal parameters and three combinations of two of these parameters from Omaha, NE, radiosonde data tapes are correlated with the type of precipitation that occurred at Offutt AFB, NE, within three hours of radiosonde time. Parameters tested are 700 mb temperature, 850 mb temperature, surface temperature, and 1000-500 mb thickness. The main criterion for the selection of these parameters was the availability of forecast values. Author
