WATCH: Meteorologist launches weather balloon during treacherous conditions

Rapid City, SD (NBC) – It’s best to stay indoors when possible when there are blizzard conditions outside, but that’s not an option for the National Weather Service.

In the video above, watch this meteorologist struggle to launch a weather balloon during treacherous conditions in Rapid City, South Dakota on Wednesday.

The winds nearly won, but he was eventually to successfully launch the balloon. Though, the winds did take one of his gloves.

The National Weather Service says the data made it back right on time.
