The estimation of the most probable local or mesoscale distribution of a climatic variable when only the large-scale value is given may be viewed as a sort of climate inversion problem. As an initial statistical study of this question, the monthly-averaged surface temperature and monthly total precipitation for 49 stations in Oregon (1948-1978) are analyzed for the purpose of relating their most probable mesoscale distributions to the large-scale monthly anomalies.
