And now, the deadly Cyclone Ockhi is hovering out in the Arabian Sea, making a beeline for the western Indian states of Gujarat and Maharashtra in the next 36 hours.
Apart from Windly.com, there’s another website which’s projecting live visualizations of global wind patterns based on numbers crunched on a supercomputer.
Just type earth.nullschool.net in your Web browser to see live global wind patterns updated every 3 hours. If you zoom in near Mumbai, you will see the movements of Cyclone Ockhi in real-time.
The website provides animated real-time data from various sources on air and oceans projected onto a world map in a visually engaging way — it tracks ocean currents at various temperatures, heights, and locations, putting together a mesmerizing animation of real-time wind patterns. If you look off the coast off Mumbai right now, you can see the central vortex of Cyclone Ockhi out at the Arabian Sea.
Believe it or not, but the website is meant for use as a teaching aid for middle schoolers.
