Better And Better

If you don't draw yours, I won't draw mine.

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.
