The P3 flies again into Tropical Storm Hermine

We continue to collect data in Tropical Storm Hermine. The NOAA43 hurricane hunter aircraft is set to fly into Hermine. It will take off at 12AM eastern time for an eight hour mission to and from MacDill Air Force Base in Tampa, FL. Below is the flight track. The dots on the flight track (shown in green) represent the aircraft turn points. The red dots in the figure show the locations that launch weather balloons twice a day while the purple dots are the locations that launch balloons once a day.
