Most important weather forecast ever made
Dr. Kent Sieg, 557th Weather Wing historian, shows an 8th Air Force weather map depicting the predicted and actual weather conditions for Europe for June 6, 1944, at the 557th Weather Wing headquarters building, Offutt Air Force Base, Nebraska, May 29, 2019. Originally scheduled for June 5, 1944, forecasts for bad weather led D-Day planners to delay the invasion of Europe to June 6, 1944. (U.S. Air Force photo by Paul Shirk)
