Not to dampen the enthusiasm, but keep in mind that these are models. Find about them in the 'about' section.
When I was recently first made aware of the site in a thread here on a hurricane
about to hit Baja
, I thought they were pretty amazing too. But then I started checking them against local conditions and found they had pretty big errors in coastal areas, most likely because of local, idiosyncratic conditions like sea and land breezes or thunderstorms.
The info is probably most useful as a predictive tool, in conjunction with local knowledge.
Taking into account that these are models, they are even more like works of art, which was my initial response too seeing them.
Still, it's a pretty cool site to play around with. For instance, check out the Antarctic Circumpolar Current
at the 10hPa level...
