the project was first presentable; what I remember is that it was
super-detailed where they'd looked, but I didn't remember "whole
country." Maybe it was the historical data around Hurricane Sandy when
I first saw it?
I'm not sure what it'll do for forecasting, but it is really
fascinating to look at. Reminds me of playing with iron filings and
If you didn't notice that the map zooms on click and can be click-drag
panned, check that out.
As for what NOAA is and is not interested in, I imagine keeping their
funding going is higher on their list than boys and wind toys.
Nevertheless, their continued work and support of our infrastructure
is what makes almost all of what we see for weather observations and
forecasting possible. We've all seen what it takes to make ONE station
work, with quite modest reliability.
Aggregating a few of their data streams for my website for the last
15+ years, I can count the problems I've had with NOAA/NWS on one hand
with some fingers left over. When I've raised issues, they've been
quite responsive and helpful.

The wind data appears to exist for well beyond the grayed US boundaries. Move your cursor below southern tip of Texas or below San Diego and boxes open that show wind data. Looks like it's there for the length of Baja and well down Mexico toward Yucatan. As if they have a big northern hemisphere wind map but put a stencil over just the US piece.That'll be way cool to look at when the winter El Norte's happen (High around 4-corners)!!On Sun, Nov 10, 2013 at 1:01 PM, steve linane <itile@...> wrote:--http://hint.fm/wind/
