Google Maps adds weather forecast support

On August 30, 2011, in Social Networking, by Mike Jefferson

Checking out weather in your local area is always useful especially if you’re planning to go on a road trip, and now Google has added a new addition to its Google Maps service that lets you check weather around the world with a single click.

Now with Google Maps, you can see weather information in your local area, in your state, or anywhere in the world. This is extremely useful if you’re planning to go on a vacation, and all that you need to do in order to find weather info is to go to the Google Maps, select new weather layer from the top right corner and type in the name of the city and get that city’s current weather. Of course, by clicking the weather icon next to the city and you’ll get additional info such as humidity, wind speed and forecast for next four days all in one place.

Weather reports in Google Maps is a welcome addition, and if you’re planning to go on a vacation, make sure that you check this new feature out.

    How accurate is the weather icon of the Google Map? It seems nice but there are update times where you’ll be able to monitor this kind of weather for the day and for how many hours. I like the idea of google map in integrating the weather system. I hope it’s effective.
