For Weather Nerds: A Decade Of Weather in 3 Minutes



Are you a weather nerd? I know you’re out there. This has been out for a few weeks, but I just saw it (thanks to Laughing Squid) — a time-lapse of 10 years of weather in the Western Hemisphere, courtesy NOAA‘s now-decommissioned GOES-12 satellite. Katrina and Sandy are there, as are the ’05 hurricanes and blizzards.

If you’re interested like me, you’ll try to spot the big storms as the 3,641 individual daily images go by. Katrina’s at :45, Sandy at about 2:50, because I know you want to see those. So did I (I was in the path of Katrina when it initially hit Florida, so… yeah, wow…).
