NOAA Photo Library Image - wea03634

This mobile weather unit was the first development in complete service on wheels by the Weather Service. Considered bulky and detachable trailer is a shortcoming. Fifth Army Headquarters used such a unit on the Italian Front. Volume 2, No. 2, of the Army Air Forces Headquarters Weather Bulletin, p. 10.
