May the wind be at your back. If duplicate then delete.

Here's another interesting site I just found (that Burt Rutan included in a recent update on his SkiGull). It shows wind direction, speed and temperature (I think) in motion, updated every 3 hours using supercomputer models.

They look the same but format is different.
One will allow calculations at elevations and selection of conditions.
Unless I missed it. Would not be the first time.
Great sites to keep on hand!

Your www.windyty.com appears to have the edge, although try clicking and dragging the mouse on the one I shared. The result is VERY interesting in how it handles perspective relative to the globe.
