Better And Better

If you don't draw yours, I won't draw mine. A police officer, working in the small town that he lives in, focusing on family and shooting and coffee, and occasionally putting some people in jail.

Because weather is awsome.

Check out the wind map.

It would be even more awsomer if it could be tweaked to display changes over a given period of time.

At this time, it's like a big sewer drain just west of Philly. Not that that's a bad thing, really.

Interesting, I'd never seen that particular depiction before...

Yeah, but the danged site keeps locking up my browsers, regardless of whether I use Internet Exploder or Firefox. It's the last weather site I hit, 'cause I have to close down after it.

If you like that, try this:

The niftiest tab to hit is there on the left "Hemispheric Products". Click on that, and then click on the "Polar" in the map. Use the pull-down in the "Product Menu", and click on the "48" images button under the "Water Vapor". It may take a couple of minutes to load with a poor connection, but the imagery is incredible.

The view from above the North Pole is a churning, swirling pot of water vapor in the atmosphere, swirling at time in almost perfect synchrony. I've seen it in five- and six-symmetry swirls.
