Google adds weather information layer to its Maps application

Now when you hover your mouse on any location on Google Maps, you will see current temperature and weather conditions of that place. Google is providing the weather information layer in coordination with weather.com and the US Naval Research Lab. To activate the feature, you need to click on the widget on the upper right corner of the Google Maps.

The new feature also tells you if it is day or night in that place via sun and moon icons. Google hopes the weather information layer help in making travel and activity planning more convenient. Apart from the current temperature, you will now be provided with detailed data such as current humidity, wind conditions and even weather prediction for the next four days.

You can also change the units of wind speed (Mph/KMph/Mps) and temperature (F/C), and enable or disable the clouds.
