Post subject:  SCRIPT - Surface Wind Colour Plot

Here's a script I put together this evening that seems to work quite well.
It displays a colour plot of the current surface wind and you can see the results on this page: Surface Wind Charts
The script is written for wind speed in MPH, if you want it to show m/s then just remove the "VMPH" tags and if you want it in knots or KM/H just replace the "VMPH" with "VKNT" or "VKMH".

Feel free to use and modify as you want and I've also included a legend that you're free to use as well but please save it to your own site and don't "hot link". ;-)
