This study was made during the winter of 1949-1950, at the United States Naval Postgraduate School, Monterey, California. The development of any objective method of forecasting appears particularly desirable for Navy forecasters, who are continuously moving to different stations throughout the world. They cannot expect to become thoroughly familiar with all the aspects of local weather during their short tours of duty at any particular locality. An objective method of forecasting for a station is based on accumulated data and experience for that locality and can be considerable aid to the Navy forecaster. I wish to acknowledge the valuable guidance and constructive criticisms of' Professor George J. Haltiner and the assistance of Professor A. Boyd Mewborn
