The use of polar-orbiting satellite sounding data to estimate rural maximum and minimum temperatures

Journal of Applied Meteorology 32(5): 857-870
The use of polar-orbiting satellite sounding data to estimate rural maximum and minimum temperatures
Atmospheric sounding products from NOAA's polar-orbiting satellites were used to derive and test predictive equations of rural shelter-level maximum and minimum temperatures. Sounding data from both winter and summer months were combined with surface data from over 5300 cooperative weather stations in the continental United States to develop multiple linear regression equations. Separate equations were developed for both maximum and minimum temperature.
