For those interested but may not have found before, the below site provides a continuously updated animated map of wind pattern throughout the continental US

PS I have a serious allergic reaction to a species of tree that grows NW of my location and during their pollination period I use this map as one tool to help predict increased pollen levels here.

Edit:
By placing the arrow at any point it instantly gives the location coordinates and wind speed at that location; and by clicking on that location you zoom in as close as you want.
If you want to know where the high and low pressure cells are located, this is the place to go.

Wow, I had no idea the center of the US is so windy! Is it always like that?

I've been viewing this one for over a year. It's a fully rotatable globe with winds.
