Our first winter storm is almost here

Time to revisit one of my favorite maps, ye olde winde map. Long-time readers saw it about two years ago but if you’re relatively new to this blog, you might have missed it.

It’s almost a work of art, as you can see in the gallery. You can even buy prints of the maps from significant dates or events. But for now, just click to see the live map in action (you can zoom in tighter to see more cities). The screenshot is from about 4:30 pm MDT today.

I was drawn to the map today because my thermometer topped out at 79°, with winds in the 30-40 mph range. Denver proper hit 80° and broke the all-time record for the month of November. But a front is rolling in from the northwest and there are winter storm warnings out for the mountains. High tomorrow is predicted to be only about 42° with maybe a trace of snow here late in the day and then back into the 60s on Sunday.

That’s all. Just wanted to mention the map (I have a thing about maps, in case you hadn’t noticed).
