A method for forecasting precipitation type during the winter months at New York City is developed. Surface temperature, freezing level, and horizontal temperature advection at 850 mb are the forecast parameters used. Results of a test of the method indicate that the assumptions applied in the development are valid.

1Based on a thesis submitted in partial fulfillment of the requirements for the degree of Master of Science in Meteorology at New York University.
