Abstract : Adverse weather conditions as defined by joint occurrence of low visibility and low ceiling have been investigated for area of Central Europe. The thresholds of adverse conditions are defined in detail in this report. The ultimate goal was the assessment of probabilities for the occurrence of adverse weather in Central Europe. Details of contingency tables for visibility versus ceiling for 14 individual stations in Central Europe up to the joint probabilities of six stations are tabulated and discussed.
