That last one is GREAT....
I have to ask, is it "surface" or some other elevation? (AGL).

The visual effect of motion is a real aid to "fill in the blanks" that occur when you just look at NWS sfc maps with isobars/fronts/centers, etc.
The 500 mb and 300 mb maps, say 18,000ft and 26,000 ft or so (varies actually) are the real Jet Stream sources.
This one has become a "keeper" on my weather weenie folder, for sure!
Thanks!...
