Here Comes the Snow
Mapbox has mapped the winter storm spreading across the east coast of the USA. The map animates water equivalent accumulated snow depth data from NOAA’s High Resolution Rapid Refresh Model.
If the snow keeps you housebound this weekend then you might want to try and replicate this map yourself with Mapbox GL. The map uses the Mapbox GL video overlay capabilities to create an animated map of NOAA's predictive weather models. Mapbox GL video overlays allow you to quickly create really impressive animated weather maps (as long as you have access to really impressive weather videos).
If you like Mapbox's snow storm map then you might also like their other weather maps of Hurricane Patricia and Animated Atmosperic Water map.
