Global wind map shows massive storm in the North Atlantic

Even though the storm system hitting the eastern US today is pretty strong, it pales in comparison to the massive low pressure center south of Iceland in the northeast Atlantic Ocean today.  For a great picture of the streamlines of wind across the North Atlantic, go to http://earth.nullschool.net/#current/wind/surface/level/orthographic=-56.44,38.74,563 and watch the wind in motion.  I’ve put the static picture below in case you are not seeing this in real time.  You can also see the cold front across the Southeast US which is afflicting the Sunbelt Ag Expo in Moultrie this morning.
