Now for the Weather on Google Maps

Met Office Invent Map
The UK Met Office is showcasing an experimental Google Maps mashup of UK weather. The map forecasts rainfall, cloud cover and air pressure over the UK for the next 48 hours.

At the top of the map is a timeline that, when played, will animate the hourly forecasts through the next two days. The video below shows a screencast of the animations in action:



Wayne's Weather Watcher

Wayne's Weather Watcher uses data from WUnderground.com to show you the weather, wherever you happen to be. It is possible to enter a zip code or address to get a weather report for that location. Alternatively, it is possible to pan the Google Map and the map will update to show the weather for your current view.

The map includes options to Show Radar, Animate Radar, Show Counties, Show Warnings and Show Temperatures.
