The wind, temperature, dew point, cloud cover,and obstructionsto visibility portions of each station model are shown. a.Decode the station modelsin Louisiana. Estimate wind direction to the nearest 10 degrees and express wind speedin knots. Put your results in an easy-to-read table. b.Note the relative dearthof observations in southern Mississippi. As Katrina came inland, many observing sites were knocked off-line, but we can certainly estimate some of the data(at 17Z, Katrina was still offi-ciallya hurricane with maximum sustained winds of 80-90 kt).
