This just in: It’s raining on Google Earth

Forget Doppler 5000 for weather updates, simply go to Google Earth 5.2.

Google Earth’s newest update for the clouds layer projects images of rain and snow over the areas with that weather.

Google earth, real time displays, real time weather updates, virtual weather

While it’s only available for precipitation tracking over North America and some parts of Europe thus far, it’s very cool. Google Earth has offered weather updates since 2007 – but now it’s in real time, and gets updated as it actually happens. Meaning you can track weather patterns, nor’easters or hurricanes and watch them as they move across the map.

For virtual weather junkies, this one’s for you.
