Meteorologist Ty Judd of the National Weather Service releases a weather balloon while holding the payload, an electronic weather sensor, at the weather station on the West Plains Thursday, Oct. 25, 2012. The sensor hangs approximately 60 feet below the balloon on its way to the upper atmosphere, which only takes a few minutes. Spokane weather forecasters are launching extra balloons to find out how local weather will affect Hurricane Sandy, which now threatens the East Coast.
