Another beautiful web.toy

Following a link from Wikipedia, I landed at, which shows a gorgeous visualization of the current wind patterns on earth, at your choice of altitudes and with several possible color overlays, including temperature, humidity and "misery index".  You can, of course, zoom and pan where you like and, for bonus style points, the pan feature redraws the map projection in real time, giving the impression that you're warping the fabric of space itself.

I'm pretty sure I've seen visualizations like this before, and even mentioned one or two here, but I'm pretty sure I haven't run across/linked to this particular one before.  A quick search suggests I haven't.  In any case, enjoy!
