Abstract

A single-station technique is used to compute vertical velocities over San Juan, P. R., at standard constant pressure levels from 850 to 100 mb. Periods of strong upward motion are observed to occur rather frequently within the layer 400 to 100 mb. and these are discussed in relation to subsequent precipitation patterns.
