Daily synoptic observations were examined to determine the critical air temperatures and dewpoints that separate solid versus liquid precipitation for the fall and spring seasons at 547 stations over northern Eurasia. The authors found that critical air temperatures are highly geographically dependent, ranging from 21.08 to 2.58C, with the majority of stations over European Russia ranging from 0.58 to 1.08C and those over southcentral Siberia ranging from 1.58 to 2.58C. The fall season has a 0… CONTINUE READING
