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.

Now, if we could get some of those stand-alone rawinsonde units placed on abandoned oil wells in the Gulf and get the HOU/GLS or CLL rawinsonde restored.
