Google Earth now shows real time weather

Google Earth has always been a great tool to explore the world. But now you can use it to explore weather patterns around the globe too. A new update for Google Earth has just been released that projects images of rain, snow and other weather patterns over the areas as it’s actually happening. Unlike the imagery, weather reports are real time. Of course, it wouldn’t make sense to show stale weather information.


To view weather reports you have to first enable the clouds layer, then zoom in to a particular location where it might be raining or snowing. When zooming out from the globe it gives a bird's satellite’s eye view of weather on Earth. When you zoom into the clouds the picture gets more detailed in the form of animation of the rain or snow for that area.


Currently, the weather data is limited to certain geographic areas in North America and Europe. You can see if it’s available in your place by enabling the radar layer.

Another weather software that’s particularly unique is Earth Alert. You might as well take a look while you are at it.
