My friend and fellow meteorologist Paul Gross (WDIV-TV Detroit) is an expert on the D-Day weather forecast and we have had several long talks about it. He posted a piece on it today. My Father had a good friend who came ashore at Omaha Beach and I took my Dad to see it shortly before his death. A friend who is retired from the BBC actually worked under Group Captain Stagg who was the forecaster in charge.
Paul’s piece is here and well worth a watch.
