  • Description:
    Hourly weather observations from several reporting stations were used to produce analyses of ceiling heights, visibility, precipitation intensity, and surface wind gusts associated with hurricane Betsy of 1965. The data plot was obtained by orienting a coordinate system on the storm center and in the direction of storm movement at hourly intervals. The analyses were made from approximately 280 observations from 14 stations over a 29 hour period from 1200 CST September 9, to 1700 CST September 10. Betsy was particularly suited to this type of study because of its rapid movement through the reporting network. The resulting distribution of weather phenomena appears reasonable in view of the lengthy time period involved.
