Abstract : The study provides a method of making timely and relatively successful forecasts of low stratus and/or advection fog at Suffolk County AFB, Long Island during the months May through September. Predictors utilized include surface wind velocity, temperature-dew point differences, and sea water temperatures. An independent evaluation of the study using one year's data yielded a skill score of .70 and a percentage correct of 89. (Author)
