A blend of infographic art and meteorological science, hint.fm’s wind map is mesmerising. It’s almost hypnotic, you can sit and watch the patterns emerge. (You’ll want to see the ‘live’, dynamic, map, not the still snapshot below.)

Those wanting to see tropical storm Sandy are best to take a peek before the next day’s data is uploaded, although I suspect it’ll be added to the gallery.

On that note, don’t miss the gallery of previous notable days. With more complex wind patterns on display, some of these are more interesting to view than the current map, with it’s one dominant feature.

Best of wishes for all those affected by storm. Keep well!
