Abstract : This report is a compilation of objective methods and 'rules of thumb' that have been developed for forecasting thunderstorms, fog, and winter precipitation. These weather events have been traditionally considered to be difficult to forecast. Forecast methods using only locally or regionally available data are highlighted. An extensive bibliography of the formal and informal literature on these subjects through mid-1997 is provided.
