Two Interesting Weather Sites
« on: August 31, 2017, 04:39:59 PM »

Here's a site that shows wind speed and direction for the entire U.S.

http://hint.fm/wind/

As I write this post, this map shows that Hurricane Harvey has moved well inland and is currently centered near Memphis, Tennessee.



Here's another site that shows wind speed and direction for half of the world.

https://earth.nullschool.net/#current/wind/isobaric/850hPa/orthographic=-97.21,32.71,481

This map shows Hurricane Harvey even more clearly.

It also shows an even more powerful storm not far from newfoundland.  And it shows a storm at the tip of Baja California.

Finally, it shows what looks like a new hurricane forming in the Atlantic, perhaps 800 to 1000 miles west of Africa.


Enjoy!!!
