Abstract: A study centered on the Oklahoma area over a 2-month period in April and May of 1998 has been carried out analyzing the accuracy of the temperature and wind speed and direction values derived from both the Television infrared Observation Satellite (TIROS) Operational Vertical Sounder (TOVS) Analysis Package and the international TOYS Processing Package 5.0. A hydrostatic mesoscale model, the Battlescale Forecast Model, part of Computer-Assisted Artillery Meteorology Battlescale Forecast Model, was used for the analysis.
