New source for wind info

I have been using this cool new site for wind direction and strength. You can change the time and day and it shows you the strength and direction of the wind. Works really good when you have an approaching front and you want to see when the wind will be changing direction. Here is the link.

    that is pretty cool
    People use statistics the way a drunk uses a street light, for support rather than illumination.

    I think I remember somebody posting this site when Mathew came thru. It was pretty sweet to watch.

    That is really cool. Moving from the Midwest to FL was a big weather learning curve (I'm a weather geek), trying to learn the patterns and such, this will be a big help... and a big time suck. :blowkiss

    Dude, first beer and now this? I am a weather geek too. It's so weird that we only get a front with a line of storms a few times every year in the winter here. The lightning down here is wicked. About the only thing I've learned about the rainy season down here and storms is the colliding sea breezes. Its also kind of weird not hearing air raid sirens every month, testing during tornado season.

    I noticed that was a weird line of rain and storms by Port St Lucie this morning.

    I spent a lot of my young life working outdoors, I learned to watch the weather all the time, now it's second nature. My folks lived in Edgewater for 30 years and so I've tried to get the hang of it, but being there myself full time for a couple of years is really helping. I honestly thought the weather came in off the ocean more... but it seems to come from the west most of the time, makes my head spin a bit.
