RAOB Fog Index

Post by JohnShewchuk »

I am currently developing a user-configurable fog forecast index (similar to RAOB's Severe Weather Table) which will consolidate a variety of individual parameters into one overall index. So far I'm adding the following parameters: Sfc wind speed, Sfc wind direction, Fog stability index, Fog threat, T-Td, Cloud cover, Lapse-rate (Sfc-3000ft), Avg RH% (in PBL), Month, and MRi (modified richardson index as developed by UPS). So, if there are any other favorites out there, I'd be interested in hearing from you.

So far I received 2 suggestions. (1) Develop two Indexes, one for Advection fog and one for Radiation fog -- that is a good idea. (2) Use the moon phase as a predictor -- ha ha -- very funny.

The new Fog Index table is now complete (http://raob.com/fog.htm) and is available with the RAOB 6.4 Beta program (http://raob.com/raob64beta.htm).
