Wait - what? I see they launched a balloon at 15Z a few days ago. What is this site?
I spoke to NWS LWX and verified from another reliable source. The soundings from
72413 are as needed and experimental, and done just across the street I am told
from 72403. I've seen soundings from 72413 for nearly a year now.
