Weather has been available on Google Earth for several years, but the latest version has the capacity to show real-time weather information.
To see it, you must first enable the clouds layer, and then zoom in to a location where it’s raining or snowing. Google Earth displays rain and snow only in certain parts of North America and Europe; to see where exactly the new feature is available, enable the radar layer.
Henceforth it will no longer be necessary to get up from one's desk and go to the window to see whether it's raining.
