It's a shame that many weather ships were removed.A rather unexpected (to me) side effect of the current situation is that weather forecasts are predicted to become less accurate.
A pandemic side-effect: Weather forecasts may become less accurate
Apparently a good deal of metrological data is reported by commercial aircraft during their trips, and used in weather predictions. As air travel has plummeted, much less data is being collected to feed into metrological models for forecasts.
The effects are not expected to be huge, just a few percent, but it's an interesting example of unexpected side effects.
