Weather Forecasters Set to Send Satellite

Ready for the launch of a new weather satellite next month, government forecasters also are turning their attention a decade ahead to plan for what their eyes in the sky will need to be like in the future. The GOES-N satellite is scheduled for launch in May, with two more launches over the next two years to complete that series of satellites. That means it’s time to plan for future satellites, expected to go up in 2014 or later, and the effort gets under way next week with a meeting of some 200 weather satellite experts in Broomfield, Colo.
