Hurricane Hunters fly Blizzard of 2016
Senior Master Sgt. Jay Latham logs information from a dropsonde released into the blizzard that impacted the East Coast Jan. 22-24, 2016. The dropsondes collect information on the storm's wind speed and direction, temperature, and barometric pressure and the data is sent back to the National Hurricane Center where it is used in forecast models produced by the National Center for Environmental Prediction.
