Hurricane Hunters prepare for 2021 tropical season [Ep. 353]


Sunday marked one hundred days until the start of the 2021 hurricane season on June 1st. It's never too early to prepare for the 2021 tropical season. After the record-breaking 2020 hurricane season in the Atlantic, many wonder what this next season could bring. The 403rd Wing, a unit of the United States Air Force assigned to the Air Force Reserve Command and home to the 53rd Weather Reconnaissance Squadron, are known for their hurricane hunter missions. Maj. Jeremy Dehart and his colleagues fly directly into - and through - hurricanes to record vital data used in the weather forecast. Dehart, who grew up in Lenior, North Carolina, joins the Carolina Weather Group panel to discuss the upcoming season, their offseason preparations, and his memories from the 2020 hurricane season.
