Pretty Rainbow-Swirl Weather Maps

During major news events CNN HD channel keeps a ticker at the bottom and side of the screen, even during commercials. This meant that political convention junkies could enjoy completely uninterrupted viewing of the sound-level meter they placed on the floor of the Democratic convention last week. Captivating.

Rainbow-swirl weather maps get lonely too.

Now that hurricane Gustav is bearing down on New Orleans, the ticker is dedicated to weather coverage, including GPS tracking. Not even an interview with Laura Bush is worthy of a full-screen picture when EXTREME WEATHER hits.

These rainbow-swirl weather maps insist that they are "just friends".

Fox News HD, not to be outdone by CNN's hurricane coverage, goes with 2 rainbow-swirl maps.
