National Weather Service on Google Maps
The National Weather Services Enhanced Data Display is an experimental Google Maps based display of current and forecast weather conditions. This isn't just your average weather map but a full GIS-centic interface with hundreds of weather related layers that can be viewed on the map.
Users can add a number of NWS data layers to the map, including radar, cloud cover and webcams. Forecasts for any location can be accessed by right-clicking anywhere on the map. Hundreds of other weather data layers can be accessed by clicking on the 'more layers' link in the map sidebar.
