Today's blog post is geared more toward the weather geeks among us, but among some of the features of the recently revamped University of Washington Atmospheric Sciences website is a link to past charts and satellite images for any day of the year...

How about the satellite image of the great Hanukah Eve Storm of 2006?



Or, the chart of how hot it was across the West during the 103 degree heat wave in July of 2009?


You can find all of these maps and more at the UW Atmospheric Sciences Site.  And if you're looking for past maps of current conditions you can find that there too.
