It's raining, it's pouring, and you can hear an old man nearby snoring his brains out. You may be wondering to yourself if the rain is ever going to stop. Fortunately, a handy new Google Earth layer allows you to see where the rain clouds are passing through. The company announced that Google Earth 5.2 now includes a clouds layer, where you can also zoom in to a particular location and figure out if it's raining, or snowing--in July. Christmas in July!
Google says that its precipitation data covers most of North America and Europe, and that it's a "fun and useful tool" for anyone who is traveling and wants to know what the atmosphere is like. You can even view hurricanes and see where they're heading. Give it a try and let us know what you think in the comments below!
