Geek Tip: Use Google Earth to Track the Weather

If you're a Google Earth nut like I am you may have noticed a new weather folder in the layers panel, which allows you to keep up on weather patterns in your area and across the world.

The Google Earth blog reports that the weather folder contains three sublayers (clouds, radar, and conditions, and forecasts) and one information link that gives you some background information on the data being displayed.

The clouds layer depicts a global satellite mosaic of clouds created on an hourly basis so you can log on any time to check out cloud movement in your area. Getting dressed in the morning just got easier.
