A Magnificent Visualization of Global Weather Conditions, Forecast by Supercomputers - Earth Live Wind Map

Atmospheric pressure corresponds roughly to altitude, several pressure surfaces are meteorologically interesting.
note: 1 hectopascal (hPa) ≡ 1 millibar (mb)
1000 hPa | ~100 m, surface conditions
850 hPa | ~1,500 m, planetary boundary, low
700 hPa | ~3,500 m, planetary boundary, high
500 hPa | ~5,000 m, vorticity
250 hPa | ~10,500 m, jet stream
70 hPa | ~17,500 m, stratosphere
10 hPa | ~26,500 m, even more stratosphere
