Objective analyses on vertical cross sections are presented as examples of the type of real-time product available on the Penn State, Department of Meteorology, on-line minicomputer. The analyses are not new, but their real-time availability is. Our experience has been that such products improve forecaster diagnosis and understanding and suggest that the “man-machine mix” concept, extended to other types of analyses and diagnoses, may be as appropriate to small machines as to large ones.
