Abstract : An objective forecast aid is presented to forecast the occurrence of fog/stratus during the period 1 November through 31 May. Parameters conducive to fog/stratus formation are identified and subjectively wieghted by points. The point total delineates three categories of occurrence or non-occurrence, with a fourth category being non-applicable due to wind speeds. Three winter seasons of independent data were used to check the study (1968-1969, 1969-1970, and 1970-1971). (Author)
