N.W. 2-Mile High Winds Forecast I Temperatures Month Ahead By Thomas R. Henry Science Editor of The Star. Two-mile high winds are the latest tools for extended weather forecasts. They make it possible to predict average temperature levels with considerable accuracy for a month in advance. The forecasters could tell, for example, whether next month will have a normal May temperature, determined by records kept for many years, or whether it will be much warmer, much colder, a little wanner or a little colder. This development was explained by Weather Bureau scientists at the annual meeting of the Ameri can Meteorological Society in the National Museum today. The monthly forecasts so far have been on an entirely experimental basis, reported Philip F. Clapp of the Weather Bureau staff, and have not been reported to the public. They have been correct in 96 per cent of the cases, he said. Consider ably better accuracy is obtained for ffve-day forecasts to which the bu reau is devoting its chief efforts. The method does not pretend to give the specific temperature for any particular day. It promises to prove of considerable value, how ever, to merchants and others whose trade will be affected by temper atures for the coming month as a whole. The system, Mr. Clapp explained, is based on the departures of the 2-mile-high winds from their nor mai directions. An excess irom me North can be expected to bring colder weather and vice versa, al though this relationship Js subject o considerable calculation. These wind trends, in turn, can be pre dicted by study of trends over many years, during which upper air observations have been taken. Test forecasts have been made for 25 stations distributed throughout the United States. The same kind of data is proving valuable for the mpre complex pre diction of rain, it was explained by R. Robert Rapp of the Weather Bureau staff. Good results have been obtained In predicting rain for 36 hours in advance. The wind circulation of the earth tends to be a perpetual motion phenomenon as great air masses sweep southward at low levels from the North Pole to the Equator and back from the Equator to the poles at high levels, according to reports presented by Dr. Bernard Haurwitz and Dr. Jerome Spare of New York University. Titanic forces are involved. Theo retically there should be enormous losses, owing to the friction of air particles; yet there appears to be no loss of energy. The explanation, Dr. Haurwitz said, seems to be that the converging of two air currents causes one to ascend to cooler re gions, whereby it loses some of its latent heat. This makes up for the frictional loss of energy. Computations of the energy of the moving air currents up to altitudes of about 15 miles, Dr: Spar reported, show that it is about five times greater in winter than in summer and regions of high energy in Jan uary are found to be those in which great storms are generated. The meetings of the society will continue for the next three days, with about 50 reports to be pre sented. There will be a dinner dance at the Washington Airport Thursday night. 'Adjusted' Traffic Tickets Total 115 Here in Week A total of 115 traffic tickets were “adjusted" last week, the police reported yesterday. This was nine more than in the preceding week.
