Second P3 flight into Franklin

The flight and science crew are up early and ready for their second flight into Franklin. NOAA P3 Hurricane hunter aircraft will take off at 4AM Eastern (0800 UTC) from Lakeland Linder Regional Airport, Lakeland, FL for a seven mission. The data from this flight will go into the weather forecast models. 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.
