Google Maps has added a weather layer to let you see weather around the world, including forecast data.

To see it yourself, just go to maps.google.com/maps?lci=weather. It should load a page like this:

Google Maps Weather - click for full size

You can always zoom in or search for a location:

Google MAps Weather Forecast

So while it is a bit chiller where I am in Suffern, if I drove a few miles towards Nyack I can warm up a bit.

Note, you can also click on a reading and get a forecast for the future.

Google said the cloud data for this layer comes from U.S. Naval Research Lab, the weather data is from our partner weather.com.

Here is a video demo:
