The weather wheel

posted by Aaron Cohen   Aug 21, 2011

I’ve been staring at Edlundart’s weather wheel for 10 minutes trying to understand exactly how to read it. It shows relative temperature, precipitation, and wind speed, and it’s just gorgeous. Bonus points for including Boston.

The Weather Wheel is based on widely available weather data, but does not display the actual numbers. Things like millimeter precipitation readings are not very meaningful to most people, so thinking of and showing these metrics in a relative way instead seemed like a clean and elegant approach.
