Figure 7 - Left - Plots of RH comparison statistics between co-located observations from WVSS-II and rawinsonde data taken for all 2009-2010 intercomparison periods at Rockford, IL (Bias, C - red; RMS, C - black; StDev, C - blue). Right - Number of observations intercomparisons used (black, mean distance between reports (km, red) and mean time difference between reports (Min., blue). Shading area indicates 1 RMS of variations (scaled to 1 hour time interval) observed between all approximately 3-hourly rawinsonde pairs used.
