Abstract : Operational planning weather forecasts for the APGC complex were evaluated for the period November 1961 through January 1962 for the purpose of determining forecast capability with respect to type, space, and time. Forecast capability for specific values was comparable to persistence but showed rapid decay with time. The capability to predict trends was statistically significant with no significant decrease of capability with time. Results show how planning forecasts may be utilized to improve operational effectiveness. (Author)
