I remember someone asking for info on the weather during an assault but I don't remember which battle. Here are a couple of links.

On the following link, scroll down to appendix 7.

That's great info Roger. As I get more obsessed with painting more accurate scenes, links like this are a big help.
Have a good one,
Darren

Glad it may help. I was of course looking for something totally different! If I find more or anyone else does, maybe we can cover all the campaigns/areas.

I've done various meteorological reports for Pacific invasions. Don't know if Patrick has them up yet. Last time I talked to him he was threatening to come take my scanner away.

Threaten him back! Hyperwar is the best site I've found so far (next to this one of course). :) I spend half my time there with the other half between all the other sites in my bookmarks. If he takes your scanner away I'll go away! Hmmm, not much of a threat there was it?

This probably should be in another thread but just in case Darren might just maybe possibly eventually want to paint the Doolittle Raid: Action Report: USS Hornet (CV-6)
HyperWar: USS Hornet Action Report, Halsey-Doolittle Raid

Plane handling on the flight deck was expeditious and well done. One plane handler lost an arm by backing to a B-25 propeller. A high wind of over forty knots and heavy swells caused Hornet to pitch violently, occasionally taking green seas over the bow and wetting the flight deck. The over-all time for launching sixteen bombers was 59 minutes. Average interval, 3.9 minutes.
From April 13 to April 16, little of note occurred; weather continued to be heavy and squally, with generally poor visibility, which of course contributed to the success of the mission. Enterprise maintained air patrol. Steaming on westerly courses.
