This technical note is a compilation of the latest clear air turbulence CAT forecasting techniques used by AFGWC forecasters. It is a comprehensive treatment of a complex and unique forecasting subject. The methods are relatively easy to follow and are a step-by-step approach to forecasting this weather phenomenon. This document replaces AFGWC Tech Memo 70-7 Turbulence Forecasting Procedures by Capt Paul T. Burnett, 15 Dec 70. Over the past nine years the automated CAT routines have been totally replaced. Also, synoptic rules of thumb and model relationships are now better understood and documented. Author
