Well, not sure if there's anyone even in the room here but me at the moment, but was looking for the past few hours conversation here to better determine what the span of time for data collection was today for Hurricane Matthew. I know the flight left around 1:30pm but in trying to determine when the mission was completed, would give me a better idea if some or all of the newly ingested data would have been included in the 0Z models, or actually might not have and thus more likely show up as ingested data more representative of most models 6Z (or even 12Z runs). This question especially applies to the EURO model given the probable additional necessary lead time needed for our data to be communicated and added for future run algorithms.

Track from earlier:

And sonde list from earlier:

http://tropicalatlantic.com/recon/recon ... duct=sonde

I'm not sure how many specifically from that mission got into the GFS. Maybe not some to the east or possibly some to the south of the storm, though the important ones to the north seem to have based on the number of sondes in that chart.

Looks like they're getting some high density eyewall data.

I wonder why recon decided to use this flight pattern. Perhaps it has to do with the other flight sampling the periphery at the same time? Regardless, I'm absolutely loving the high density wind data from the eyewall.

For those wondering, here is what NOAA43 is up to today:
"NOAA43: Is scheduled to fly an Ocean Winds research mission into Matthew. Take off is scheduled for 1500 UTC (11AM Eastern) to and from St. Croix, US Virgin Islands. No HRD scientists will be on this flight."

Also, here are the locations the G-IV aircraft will be dropping dropsondes this afternoon and evening:

I miss the instant gratification of the previous eyewall mission.
