Google Earth 5.2 Weather Simulation: Setup guide

Google Earth already offers more than enough, but the search engine giant knows that users what more new features all the time, which is why 5.2 update comes with weather simulation in real-time. This means that in some parts of the U.S. and Europe you will be able to track rain and snow.

We are not certain if people will use this, it is not going to be as accurate as Doppler and other radar / satellite services. We believe that this will be used as a gimmick and fun rather than a reference tool.

The weather simulation is not set up by default; you first need to enable the clouds layer in the weather tab, then all you need to do is zoom in on a desired area and hope that this is covered in the 5.2 update.

I thought that I would give the update and try, so decided to zoom in on Florida – we all know that states gets all kinds of weather systems moving in. I can see some cloud there with some rain moving in, which seems like everyday life. Well, that’s going on my past two vacations there.

Give Google Earth 5.2 a go and let us know what you think.
