Here’s something really cool and likely something you’re going to look at regularly.
Axel Bojanowski reports here at Spiegel on an outstanding interactive global weather real-time animation tool. The animation is the creation of US programmer Cameron Beccario.

You can use the mouse to rotate the globe and to activate the animation of what is happening on the planet, real time. By clicking on a certain location, the exact longitude and latitude coordinates are appear along with wind speed data in a box. It’s really fascinating.
Bojanowski says to open it with Firefox or Crome browser!
For example in the above cropped image, the tiny circle all the way in the upper left corner appears and the box contains information for that location such as wind velocity and coordinates
This probably is known to others already. For me it’s the first time I see it.
Enjoy. It’ll be handy to use as storms approach.
