Abstract

A large number of forest fires were caused by unusual strong dry winds over northeastern Japan on 27 April 1983. The total area of devastated forest by these fires amounted to about 9, 000 hectare. The present paper explains this particular weather phenomenon and shows a method to predict the local wind speed under strong wind conditions.
