Another flight into Karl early this morning

We are still tracking Karl. It’s a stretch to fly from St. Croix but we can still gather data inside Karl. NOAA43 will take of at 2AM Eastern (0600 UTC) for an eight hour mission. Below is the proposed 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.
