Which way is the wind blowing?

Curious about current wind patterns around the globe? Check out Windy.com. This is one of those posts that I’m not sure how to use it in a math class, but the website is so cool I’m posting about it. The graph here is a still image but the wind currents are shown moving in real time on the webpage. NOAA’s Climage.gov page Windy has suggestions on how to use the page in classrooms. Take a look, really, and leave a comment if you have a thought on how to use this in a math classroom.
