Weather, meet Google Maps.

Starting today, you can find out what the weather conditions are wherever you're headed right from the screen in Google Maps, thanks to the new weather layer. It seems like a simple innovation, and given the wide availability of weather by zip code, one might wonder why we're just now seeing it in Google Maps; but the important thing is you'll no longer have to use a dedicated website or app to find out what the weather is like where you're going, which will certainly make our lives easier this weekend.
