This is a screenshot from HINT.FM’s wind map, a visualization of wind data from the National Digital Forecast Database. The static image doesn’t do it justice, because the constant motion of the winds is what makes it mesmerizing. As you can see, the remnants of Isaac are still moving across the US, though considerably reduced in power. What has not reduced is its sheer geographical coverage, from the very southern tip of Texas to the shores of Lake Michigan.
Looks pretty quiet in my old stomping grounds. I’ve bookmarked this site to check it again in the winter, when the Oregon coast is experiencing its usual typhoon-strength winter storm winds. It will be interesting to see how the overall map changes with the changing seasons.
