UKSnow Map Back in Action

#uksnow

If you live in the UK and are a little miffed at the cold weather then you can at least be thankful for Ben Marsh's #uksnow map. With snow now falling in Scotland and northern England #uksnow has sprung back to life.

The app searches Twitter for real-time snow reports and displays them on a Google Map. The map itself has been spruced up with a little Styled Maps goodness.

If you want to add your own observations to the map you just need to Tweet the hashtag #uksnow, the first half of your postcode, and rate the snow that is falling out of ten (0/10 for nothing, 5/10 for steady snow and 10/10 for arctic blizzard conditions).
