Woah, indeed it has been windy here on the left coast of North America recently, although that is part of winter! Enter EarthWindMap, an animated map of global weather condition
So with the winter storms comes storm watching, a favorite activity of photogs, surfers and outdoor enthusiasts, particularly in the PacificNW. But there is a safe way to watch the wind patterns and you need not worry about getting swamped by a wave or drenched from driving sideways rain… enter EarthWindMap
Sit back and watch the jetstream and other currents circle and swirl, with patterns intensifying in color according to wind strength – it really is quite awesome!
Note, the service mashes up Global datasets from a variety of open, Government resources from the likes of NOAA and others. EarthWindMap is made with NAturalEarth. See complete details at http://earth.nullschool.net/about.html
Oh, and you developers can really geek out and mash and hackup the code from EarthWindMap as its available on Github source code: http://github.com/cambecc/earth
