Google LatLong: How's the Weather?

The Google LatLong blog has today announced a new weather layer for the latest version of Google Earth (4.2).

The "Weather" folder contains three sub-layers ("Clouds," "Radar," and "Conditions and Forecasts") and one "Information" link that gives you some background information on the data being displayed. The "Clouds" layer depicts a global satellite mosaic of clouds created on an hourly basis. The "Radar" layer contains a near real-time Doppler radar image of the United States, updated every 15 minutes.

The "Conditions and Forecasts" layer contains observation and forecast data for nearly 50,000 cities worldwide.
