Neat indeed, if it's an accurate depiction of current winds.
not convinced that it is accurate, as I saw a wind effectively stop at the east coast of America and not continue overland ...

I've been watching it for the past few weeks, and it is in reasonable agreement with on ground measurements by the BOM, and the wind data stream lines as shown by Weatherzone, although it is somewhat smoothed out, missing some fine detail.
