A Google Map Warning of Rain

Rain Alarm

This Google Map based application will send you a warning when rain is approaching.

Rain Alarm displays an animation of current precipitation and can warn you against approaching rain or snow. The app checks a perimeter of 75 km around your selected location every 30 minutes. If rain is approaching your location the map will then sound the alarm.

The app is currently available for the USA, Canada, Australia, the UK, Ireland, Norway, Germany, the Netherlands and Spain including the Balearic and the Canary Islands.

This is great! I leave my astrophotography gear set up unattended overnight and I'm always afraid of rain. Is there any chance you could create an SMS notification feature? That way, the app could wake me up if rain is near.
