Google Maps Gets Weather Forecasts

. August 19, 2011 . 0 Comments

Google Maps is providing current weather information and cloud data from around the world by an arrangement with weather.com and the U.S. Naval Research Laboratory.

“To add the weather layer, hover over the widget in the upper right corner of Google Maps and select the weather layer from the list of options. When zoomed out, you’ll see a map with current weather conditions from weather.com 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. And, if you look closely, you can also tell if it’s day or night around the world by sun and moon icons.

Enabling the weather layer also gives you an instant weather report for friends and family living around the world.”
