Abstract

The average number of days with at least one hour of dense or heavy fog in the conterminous United States is shown on a new map, based on data from 251 Weather Bureau stations through 1960. Visibility limits for this hydrometeor ranged from 1000 to 1650 feet. The map shows more detail, especially in the Central United States, than its immediate predecessors, by Stone in 1936, and in "Climate and Man" in 1941.
