Feast Your Eyes on This Old-School Weather Model


Modern meteorology is nothing short of amazing. The way they can use doppler radar to track a storm front, where it is going, and how long it will be there is a marvel of modern science (even if the weatherman are off here and there), But you take a look at this old school weather model and you realize juts how far they have evolved:

It simulated the growth, movement, and decay of large weather systems from the fundamental laws of physics. This model was the first in a series in which the Laboratory’s computational capabilities were used to study atmospheric processes.

So even if it seems like the weather still has a ways to go before they are 100% accurate all the time, they have come quite far since weather reporting first surfaced. This gif clearly shows that.
