Florida hurricanes by Richard W Gray ( Book )
3 editions published between 1936 and 1949 in English and held by 42 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Some notes on forecasting for Atlanta and Miami districts: (North and South Carolina, Georgia and Florida) by Grady Norton ( Book )
2 editions published in 1944 in English and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In dealing with the Atlanta and Miami districts, it soon becomes apparent that the weather situations differ widely from north to south. There is no sharp line of demarcation, but generally we will be compelled to think of Florida in a separate category from Georgia and the Carolinas. Although considerable difference exists in various portions of Georgia and the Carolinas, north to south and west to east, we will not attempt separate treatment as between these states. Florida will therefore be treated as one unit, while Georgia and the Carolinas will constitute another, for these purposes

Some Notes of Forecasting Jacksonville District by Grady Norton ( )
1 edition published in 1948 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
"General weather and temperature forecasting in the South Atlantic States presents many problems not readily solved by the voluminous writings of recent years by meteorologists who have applied the frontal analysis system, isentropic analysis, and various theories and formulas of thermodynamics, etc., in an effort to answer the forecaster prayers for better interpretation and prognostic methods. After some years, we find it just as difficult to forecast a cold wave, a snow storm, a hurricane, or even local thundershowers as before the newer methods came into use. In fact, I believe the evidence is unmistakable that we are not doing as good a job all along the line. The problem has been confused by too much theoretical considerations. For this reason, the following is written in an effort to get back to earth and set down a few practical rules for forecasting in this district based on observed behavior of pressure patterns, with only descriptive reference to air masses, fronts, isentrophy, thermodynamics. In dealing with the Jacksonville District, it soon becomes apparent that the weather situations differ widely from north to south. There is no sharp line of demarcation, but generally we will be compelled to think of Florida in a separate category from Georgia and the Carolinas. Although considerable difference exist in various portions of Georgia and the Carolinas, north to south and west to east, we will not attempt to separate treatment as between these states. Florida will therefore be treated as one unit, while Georgia and the Carolinas will constitute another, for these purposes."
