Google Earth Now Has Weather Data

I lost the link but read in a press release today that Google Earth now has real time overlaid weather data, it is limited for now to North America but should cover the entire world soon.

Thought it might be of interest to the North America sailors.

Cheers!

"Google Earth can now display real-time weather including rainstorms and blizzards "

If visability in a blizard is low how will we be able to see the screen?

You, of all people, should know that the computer makes a GREAT weather forecaster.

If you can't see the screen and all you see is white, it's a blizzard.
If you can't see the screen and all you see is black, it's night.
If drops of water is dripping down the screen, it's raining.
If the computer flies from your lap, it's windy.

etc.

That's pretty funny

Too bad Google earth images aren't in real time to see where the night life is happening or other cruisers are at.
