Weather forecasts have been incorporated into Google Maps.

Google announced the new feature on its blog Thursday. It is being launched in partnership with, which is providing weather data and forecasts, and the U.S. Naval Research Lab, which is providing cloud coverage information.

The new feature can be activated in the menu on the upper right-hand side of the screen. The menu includes other optional information such as traffic conditions and topographical information. Current conditions and cloud patterns are visible on the map itself, and clicking on a given city brings up a detailed forecast.
