Have you ever wondered what the wind flows look like in the United States? Or better yet, exactly how many mph the wind travels at in a specific region? A new site has been created to let anyone find that out, and to help those interested in building wind turbines and wind farms in the U.S. locate the optimal areas for their renewable energy projects.

The wind map displays a visualization of data pulled from the National Digital Forecast Database and is updated every hour. The image above is just a snapshot, so be sure to visit the interactive wind map to see the full functionality – including archives for wind activity in the past – for yourself.
