Has anyone recently seen a correct map of actual jet streams in the US? or the world for that matter? Why has the weather channel now owned by IBM (Check out their disclosure at the bottom of every page) and the very nature of their entire website has been dumbed down since the last time i visited it the graphics Seem to be like for a 10 year old

Has anyone else seen this "trend" towards all clips and you actually have to dig -a lot just to get information?

Weather underground was a site I used to look at. I do not know if it even exists anymore.

Use windy.com or look for earth.nullschool.net. Those are live maps that measure and track just about everything.


Weather channel is utter climate propagandist nonsense without John Coleman.

Three YouTube channels to keep ya in the know, Adapt2030, Suspicious0bservers, and TheOppenheimerRanchProject.

These sources of information will send ya down the right path.

Of course it's dumbed down. They have to impart certain information in a very short time period, as I believe most viewers of their content is moving to their next flight.

Unless I've completely misread the maps I linked, yes it is. Right over the Midwest & Upper Plains, curving up into Ontario.

yea i seen that but it does not really cover much of the states due to the gulf and what you describe seems to be just going in a circle and not really coming from the ocean.

If we were in a balloon up there we would just be doing circles in the area you reference.

Just seems like the lack of normal stream flow has many all hot and bothered.

That's a matter of opinion.

You have to create your product to fit the time span or attention span of the people viewing your material.

Sure. They sell information. That's their product. If you don't like it, there are many competitors to go to for something else. That's information capitalism at work.

IBM only owns a relatively small stake. They ONLY provide the infrastructure.

I quit watching them years ago, after they started using kiddie weather maps, and the personalities started broadcasting from their home...in front of a green screen that made it looks like a studio.

The Weather Channel founder, John Coleman, was an incredibly good and entertaining weather man here on WLS-ABC-7 Chicago, in the 1970's.

Now that you mention it, local weatherman used to point out & talk about the jet stream pretty regularly. I haven't heard it mentioned in I don't know when.

I stuck a fork in the WeatherChannel for serious purposes when they started naming Winter Storms and treating them like major hurricanes.

I will use them to occasionally back up other sources, but that's about it.

If you want that kind of talk from ours, you need to check out the weather blog. One of our local guys has one and he gets into the weeds there with all kinds of stuff, including the jet stream and upper level air masses and everything else.
