This remarkable WP-3C Orion has equipment onboard to determine in-situ precipitation size spectra and phase with its laser imaging instruments. This aircraft can also deploy dropsondes to measure wind and thermodynamic properties below flight level. It also can sense surface winds remotely with its active and passive microwave instruments onboard.
