Interactive Map Shows Wind Flows for Entire US

By Tim Romano

If you haven't figured it out yet, I'm a bit of a map junkie. I like them printed, new, old, digital, or 3D. A couple of days ago my wife forwarded me a website simply titled Wind. As an angler and boater I'm keenly interested in that four letter word. As I'm sure you know it dictates much of what we do in the outdoors, especially in regards to getting on the water.

If you're like me and appreciate a good map, or have a love/hate relationship with the wind as a fly angler, do yourself a favor and visit the wind map site. The static map above was from a couple days ago and doesn't do the maps justice. Once you get to the site you'll see what all the fuss is about. Wind speeds are shown by the speed and thickness of the white lines on the black map as they constantly cascade over the United States. It's really quite beautiful. There's even a historical map gallery for certain days, like when Super-storm Sandy came ashore in October of last year.

Enjoy.

I'm a map guy too. Whenever I go someplace with interesting maps on the wall, I'm drawn to them. I spend too much time on Google and Bing Maps. This one is really neat. Thanks.

This is cool! It makes it look like the United States is a giant hairy beast!

I think maps are definitely a "outdoor guy" thing. Having a map like this will help me scout my next hunting spot.
