Wind, wind, baby!

To quote an unrelated website:

...Cameron Beccario’s website titled Earth.

The website is a near real-time visualization of global weather conditions forecast by supercomputers. It vividly captures the intricate and dramatic swirling patterns of wind streamlines, which are reminiscent of impressionistic-style oil paintings.

Beccario’s project began with a wind map of Tokyo, where he lives, and he then took on the world. You can see his animated creation at earth.nullschool.net.

You gotta check this thing out, it is amazing.

P.S. You can zoom in or out, and rotate the image to view your own area of the globe.

One day we will wake up and realise that it is all over – that Trump was just passing wind… or that he was just an ass in the wind – smelly, obnoxious, but finally gone.

With the current US Nor’easter, and with our little blow, now is a good time to play with the tool... :raining:

That's a gorgeous planet with gorgeous wind. There's a swirling vortex centered on Stamford, CT right now. :)

Oh, please! You don't have to be a weathergord to know which way the simulated winds blow.

Blasphemy! May the gods Boreas and Eurus smite you. Zephyrus, on the other hand could probably give a {!#%@}.

♫Zephyr, she's my baby,
