Short summary
Forecast indices commonly used in operational meteorology can be computed from temperature and humidity profiles retrieved from a ground-based microwave radiometer. The values of radiometer-derived forecast indices agree well with values computed from radiosondes (correlation usually above 0.8). Radiometer-derived forecast indices offer the advantage (with respect to radiosondes) of nearly continuous data, capturing the entire diurnal cycle and providing fresh and timely data to forecasters.
