Whether you’re planning a trip abroad or a picnic in a local park, knowing the weather is an important component of the planning process. Google have added a weather layer on Google Maps that shows the temperature and current conditions around the world to make travel and planning activities a lot easier.
Add The Weather Layer In Google Maps
You can add a weather layer in Google Maps by simply hovering the mouse pointer over the widget in the top right corner of Google Maps and by selecting the weather layer from the long list of options. When you zoom out, you will see the weather map from weather.com for the different places on the Google Maps, with icons to indicate the sun, clouds, rain, etc. You can also see the cloud cover, thanks to the Google Maps partners in the U.S. Naval Research Lab. If you look closely, you can also tell if it is day or night all over the world by looking for the sun and moon represented by icons.
Google Maps Weather Conditions For Family And Friends
Activating the weather layer in Google Maps also gives you the instant weather conditions for friends and family who live in other parts of the world. Clicking on the climate or weather icon of a given city will open an information window with detailed information, such as humidity and wind conditions and forecasts for the next four days. You can also change the units of wind speed from Mph to KM/PH and temperature from Fahrenheit to Celsius, and enable or disable the clouds (when you are zoomed out) from the left panel in Google Maps.
