Reporter's Notebook: Weather Warriors

(CNN) – The Special Operations Weather Team (SOWT) is less a than a hundred person unit within the Air Force’s Special Operations Command. The SOWT’s deploy with the likes of Army Rangers, Navy Seals and other Special Forces into extremely hostile territory. Once on the ground, their duties encompass everything a special ops soldier regularly endures, in addition to assessing and interpreting weather and environmental conditions. The data a SOWT generates is not only vital for battlefield conditions for military deployments, but also for guiding in rescue choppers in real-time combat situations. Our Rob Marciano talks to SWOT soldiers in the second part of his original report, “Weather Warriors”.
