Did you know.. Weather in Google Maps?

I think I'm going to start a new header in my blog posts  "Did you know..."

Even though I work at Google, I'm still sometimes surprised by features that launch that somehow slipped by me.  

Here's one of them:  You can now turn on the "Weather Layer" in Google Maps.  Just go to the Satellite / Map icon in the upper right corner of the map, roll your mouse over it and a popup layer will appear.  Select "Weather." 
When you do, a bunch of weather icons (current weather) will appear as a layer on the map. Here's one for the current weather on the Big Island of Hawai'i.  

And here, the nice little demo video the Maps people made.  

Glad I finally noticed!
