March 10, 2017. Paul Lugin (http://www.dolphin24.org/paullugins.windswept.html) sent us a note about a website https://earth.nullschool.net/ he found with interesting global and local wind speed and direction graphics. We took a look and thought we would pass it along.
NOAA has a webpage up with commentary - https://www.climate.gov/teaching/resources/earth-animated-map-global-wind-and-weather - that gives the website good marks - check out the Notes/Comments from their reviewers. The visuals and stuff presented is above this webmasters paygrade - comments from Dolphin owners/website readers are welcome
Today, we are getting heavy snow in southeastern Connecticut. I thought I'd take a look at wind speed and direction out at Block Island. Here's the image - wind out of the NE (35 degrees) at 21 km/hr
