The wind has never been this beautiful! This interactive visualization of wind patterns all around the world is created by a script that downloads weather data from the Global Forecast System at the National Centers for Environmental Prediction, part of NOAA/the National Weather Service. This raw data is then rendered in your browser in the form of a globe that can be moved (drag with the mouse) and zoomed in and out of (use your mouse scroll wheel).
The data is updated every 3 hours, so it is pretty close to real-time considering that this isn't just a small local dataset but covers the whole planet. You can access it here: Earth Wind Map.
It reminds a little of this beautiful interactive animated wind map of the U.S., but it's even more beautiful, and it covers the whole planet.
