Abstract : The study investigates relationships between observed frozen precipitation and associated meteorological conditions in large cities, and develops procedures for presenting tabulated data on frozen precipitation in a readable and usable form. An explanation of several interpretations is included with methods of analysis, sample diagrams, advantages and disadvantages, and comparisons of the different interpretations. To avoid excessive bulk, only the diagrams for LaGuardia Airport and Buffalo, New York, are discussed in this paper. Similar Figures for 22 other stations are on file at USA CRREL. (Author)
