This study is focused on the experimental research of the atmosphere impact on FSO link attenuation. Experiment is performed on a mountain observatory Milesovka of severe weather conditions. The empirical relationships on 830 nm only between FSO attenuation A on one hand and atmospheric visibility V or wind turbulent energy ET on the other hand are presented and discussed. In the fog case it was found A= 401.4V-0.5738- 1.462 dB/60m (V in meters) while for the attenuation due to the wind turbulence ET it holds A = 2.112 - 2.213 exp(-0.2867ET) dB/60m (ET in m2s-2, it was derived for 830 nm wave length). A discussion concerning problems of the “clear air attenuation,” atmospheric turbulences and sun shine impact, which was observed as a maximum 2 dB attenuation for a few minutes with a period of 24 hours is added.
