dc.description.abstractPresent numerical weather methods do not include a current analysis or a forecast of larger scale occurrence of cloudiness and precipitation. The model used in this paper uses vertical velocities and dew-point depressions at the levels of 850, 700, and 100 mb as inputs to a diagram which determines the accompanying weather parameter. Good results were obtained for a current analysis, but the prognosis scheme used proved to be unsatisfactory at the present time. The model is programmed for the Control Data Corporation 1604 digital computer to utilize the operational output of machine-processed data and analysis produced by U.S. Navy Fleet Numerical Weather Facility (FNWF), Monterey, California. The writers wish to express their appreciation to Professor George J. Haltiner of the U.S. Naval Postgraduate School for his assistance, guidance and encouragement in this work. Appreciation is also expressed to the personnel of FNWF for their cooperation and especially Mr. Harry Farnsworth for his aid and advice in programming and performing the machine computations. We also wish to express our thanks to Mrs. E.L. Geraldson and Mrs. C.D. Clower for their work in plotting numerous weather charts used in the verifications.en_US
