Abstract

A modified numerical mesoscale model, neglecting the microphysics of condensation, is developed to predict fog formation and validated against detailed case studies. When initialised with routinely available airport observations, simulations illustrate an ability to predict fog formation in the vicinity of Perth Airport. Although requiring saturation to indicate fog formation, these studies illustrate the potential of a simplified version for routine fog forecasting.
