A paper published in 1948 suggested that there was a correlation of 0.62 between the wind on Jupiter (as indicated by the motion of the Great Red Spot) and mean zonal geostrophic winds at the surface of the earth. Observations since 1948, on the other hand, indicate a correlation of −0.12, suggesting that the original correlation was spurious, even though it appeared statistically significant according to standard tests.

Large-scale vertical velocities are shown to be closely related to the probabilities of convective precipitation and fair weather in the eastern United States during July 1955. In the daytime the mean relative humidity of the 900 to 700 mb layer is better related to the probability of convective precipitation than the vertical velocity. At night, however, vertical velocity is the best single predictor of convective precipitation, with a modified Showalter Index being a very useful additional criterion.

The large-scale vertical velocities that occur in normal summer synoptic situations appear to be produced by a diurnal variation in the momentum exchange between the ground and the air.
