Results of synchronous optical and meteorological measurements of Fried’s coherence length at the Large Solar Vacuum Telescope are presented. A decrease in this parameter in winter time is revealed. Spectra of wind speed and temperature inhomogeneities are studied during measurements of the Fried’s length.
