Google Earth Shows Precipitations Around the Globe in Real Time


The newest addition to Google Earth is the clouds layer. This feature is now able to show rain and snow in real-time weather patterns throughout the globe.

After turning on the clouds layer, it is then possible to zoom in to any location. However, current the function is limited to a number of parts of North America and Western Europe.

After enabling the radar layer it is possible to see where the information on precipitations is available.

Probably the most interesting thing about the new feature is that it shows everything in real time, showing everything as it actually is.

With this tool it is possible to track different weather patterns, storms and observe them while the move on the map.

The latest version of Google Earth is available here.
