- Last but not least: Gudmunds pictures
again and also a
hall of fame.
- Unfortunately, we must cancel the flights due to bad weather at Andenes, persistent snow
fall and low visibility ... We will try and catch the low before landfall tomorrow morning.
- NOAA infrared and visible satellite imagery from 05:53 UTC showing the formation of three
polar lows over the Norwegian Sea.
- Flight planning this morning went forth and back. There are polar lows forming over the
Norwegian, which are partly captured by the ECMWF. However, the mesoscale structure looks
interesting. The idea is two have a full map of the interior structure of the cylcones and the
inflow conditions on the cold (and less cloudy) side to the west and the north. The flight plans
are designed and can be found here.
