Real time Weather on Google Maps

Google Maps are now integrated with live feeds of real time weather. So no need to check the weather channel any longer - just check the weather in your area from your favourite map app!

 According to their official blog post, "Whether you’re organizing a trip overseas or a picnic at a local park, knowing the weather forecast is a crucial part of the planning process. Today, we’re adding a weather layer on Google Maps that displays current temps and conditions around the globe, and will hopefully make travel and activity planning easier. "

Anyways, to make sure your new weather man is activated and ready to serve you up the latest weather status, be sure to check the "Weather" option from the top right menu below "Earth" and "Satellite." The blog also says "When zoomed out, you’ll see a map with current weather conditions from for various locations, with icons to denote sun, clouds, rain and so on. You can also see cloud coverage, thanks to our partners at the U.S. Naval Research Lab."
