Abstract : The analysis investigates fog and stratus during the months of November through March. Ten months of data from the years 1957, 1958 and 1959 were used. Three operational categories were used as criteria for development of this objective technique. The categories are: (1) Below Minimums: ceiling less than two hundred feet and visibility less than one-half mile; (2) IFR: ceiling less than fifteen hundred feet but not less than two hundred feet and visibility less than three miles but not less than one-half mile; and (3) VFR: ceiling fifteen hundred feet or greater and visibility three miles or greater.A consolidation of the scattergrams is tabulated.
