Thousand miles of wind

Posted: 17 Apr 2012 05:56 AM

The past two days have seen quite a bit of wind with high wind warnings and wind advisories issued by the National Weather Service. The featured map presents a crude calculation of the amount of air that passed by an observation station as expressed in miles of wind. As in your car, the distance traveled is simply the product of your speed and the time you traveled at that speed. This calculation is shown in the featured map with some locations over 1,000 miles in the past two days. More gusty winds are expected today.

Good = 34
Bad = 6
