Abstract : The areal probabilities of adverse weather at a station network consisting of Heildelberg, Frankfurt, Hahn, and Saarbrucken have been determined for the period of record 1967 through 1976. Eight categories of adverse weather conditions are specified in the report on the basis of visibility and ceiling observations alone. The probabilities of simultaneous occurrence of adverse weather for all possible combinations of two, three, and four stations, as well for each individual station, have been tabulated for eight different observation times (spaced three hours apart). Detailed probabilities are given for various combinations of conditions. Tabulations are included for all grouped data, stratified according to season and month. (Author)
