I've just launched a project I've been working on for awhile, windhistory.com. Check out the prevailing winds in California or see how strong the northeast winds are in Honololu.
One goal of the project is to help pilots understand typical winds at their airports. It's also a neat demo of what modern web development technology can do. I'm particularly proud that the wind rose diagrams in the map are rendered entirely client side in SVG from a single 200k data file. More tech details in a followup blog post.
