Re: Real-Time U.S. Wind Map

Guys, there's a link titled "Let Us Know" toward the bottom of the page.
"We'd be interested in displaying data for other areas; if you know of a source of detailed live wind data for other regions, or the entire globe, please let us know."
I just dropped them an email requesting they incorporate coastal onshore NOAA real time wind data and data from buoys.

If enough of us show an interest we may get our wish

Re: Real-Time U.S. Wind Map

The US map was blank with my normal IE Version 8. I had to switch to Chrome to get it to work.



Nice

Re: Real-Time U.S. Wind Map

I downloaded the windfinder app to my iPhone. Windfinder is a collection of personal weather stations. Someone put up a weather station at the lake where I sail. It provides very dependable current and forecasted winds.

And here is an equally cool animation of ocean currents (not real-time).
