This is so cool. Be sure and double-click on the map several times to zoom-in and in and in. The vortex over Texas is crazy. Wind Map

Erin - "cool" is an understatement - it's an excellent visualization! I'm wondering about the atmospheric elevations being mapped...

I think it's most likely surface-elevation - data in that much detail is probably coming from local weather stations, and is the most relevant to weather reporting. The jet streams higher up would be interesting too, but are not as complex as what we're seeing here, if my understanding is correct.
