NOAA weatherView is a new tool designed by the NOAA Visualization Lab to provide an interactive experience with NOAA weather models : lets you display wind, temperature, precipitation and other models to see weather patterns around the globe.
The NOAA gives us the example of Typhoon Soudelor, which passed over Taiwan yesterday.
All of these data are also available from the NOAA Operational Model Archive and Distribution System built by NOAA National Centers for Environmental Information - Climate.
