IOP3 Update #1: 10:00 AM Thur Mar 31

The investigators are currently meeting to develop today’s science plan.  Because of the typical constraints of observing in this region (fast storm motion, limited radar deployment sites, etc.) it won’t be possible to adjust the radar deployment when we see the storms approach or develop.  Some of the more nimble assets, such as sticknets, disdrometers, etc. will likely be held near the center of the deployment domain and try to deploy ahead of the most interesting activity when it develops.  There will be another status post shortly describing the overall weather scenario and the deployment plan.
