It’s hard to get excited about weather forecasts unless they promise warm and sunny days, but you might just make an exception for Windyty. The browser-based meteorological tool shows you living, breathing view of the world’s wind patterns along with overlays for everything from temperature to humidity. Arguably, it’s both beautiful and useful — those mesmerizing swirls will help you understand why it’s going to be unusually blustery or chilly on a given day. The page works on both your phone and desktop, too. There are still some definite holes in Windyty’s map (it doesn’t show borders or cities right now), but it’s worth a look if you’re done with old-fashioned weather charts and radar views.
