Tyrone Posted August 19, 2008 Author Report Share Posted August 19, 2008 When ever I fly across the equator up to Singapore etc I keep an eye out the window to see what's going on down below. It's a bit hard to tell wind direction though. Clouds tend to get thick and deep and definitely rainbearing at 10S, about where you cross the coast of Indonesia. Thunderstorms are humungous and maybe up to 60000ft high on and near the equator. It's an exciting place. I'd love to know if that wind direction thing is true. I'd imagine that right on the equator the winds would be light and variable, with more of a convection effect, than a prevailing wind effect. i find this all fascinating stuff.
