Abstract : Four cases of variation of wind and temperature over periods of approximately 12 hours in the first 152 meters of the planetary boundary layer are examined in some detail. An effort is made to explain some observed marked changes in wind and temperature which may not be apparent on the usual synoptic chart because of their mesoscale or microscale characteristic.
