Jetstream?

Any chance of a jetstream overlay such as is used by the UK Met Office forecasts? As a major determinant of weather patterns, it would be instructive to be able to study its movements.

@beardypete, is this the page you mean? It’s really important I understand what is wanted and why, otherwise I could go developing something and it’s the wrong thing. Also because the streamlines int eh list is very hard to do.

Apologies Duane, I replied to your response via email, and Gmail has only just bounced my message - I hadn’t realised that I had to reply via the forum.

Here’s the link that I wanted you to see:

Sorry again for this tardy response,

Are these the same as the wind streamlines but at a higher altitude?

Cheers, Duane.

Kind of
a narrow variable band of very strong predominantly westerly air currents encircling the globe several miles above the earth. There are typically two or three jet streams in each of the northern and southern hemispheres.

Hi Duane,

Here’s a pretty comprehensive article on the nature, behaviour, and effects of the Jetstream.
