The purpose of USAFETAC Project 90814 was to determine whether or not a lake-effect snow forecasting method used by AWS weather forecasters at Griffiss AFB, NY Det 8, 26 WS actually improved snow forecasts. During the 1989-90 winter. Griffiss forecasters used a lake-effect snow forecast decision tree developed by the National Weather Service Forecast Office NWSFO a Buffalo, NY Niziol, 1987, a procedure based on model-derived forecast variables. USAFETAC was charged with tailoring this decision tree for Griffiss AFB and producing a useful lake-effect snow forecasting tool.
