Yesterday Google announced the roll out a new feature that lets users view the weather anywhere around the world in Google Maps.

The new feature offers users the ability to add a “weather layer” to any map they are viewing via Google Maps. When viewing the weather feature click on the weather icon for city and an info window will open containing the predicted forecast for the next four days and details such as the current humidity and wind conditions. All the weather information is weather.com.

    This new weather feature is pretty cool. I was looking at San Diego’s weather and found that Google also has a feature that lets you see public webcams like surfline.com which allows you to see live footage of the surf.

    Thanks for the post.
