I just noticed that the fabulous application GOOGLE EARTH has a feature--perhaps a new feature or perhaps one that I never noticed before today--which puts near real-time weather information and precipitation RADAR echoes as overlays on the aerial views.

In the LAYERS panel on the lower left, check the box for "Weather" and wait a few minutes. You should see weather data like temperature, cloud cover, and RADAR echoes from precipitation appear on the Google Earth display. Expand the Weather options and click on the "Information" hyperlink to learn more. This could be useful for boat trip planning. Of course, you need a connection to the public internet to get the data.

This is one of the features I like about EarthNC. You can overlay weather RADAR on both Google Earth imagery and NOAA charts.

It also requires an internet connection to do this.
