Wind Map of USA

A U.S. map that shows wind direction and speed, updated hourly (apparently) is available at this website.

This is fascinating, if accurate. This is a good first step in making wind-power more reliable. Another step is the use of neural networks with wind-speed indicators to more accurately predict the timing of wind and gusts so that power fluctuations are reduced.
