Weather now available in Google Maps API (v3)

Weather now available in Google Maps API (v3)

Add the weather layer easily via  Google Map API.

The concepts within this section refer to features only available within the google.maps.weather library. This library is not loaded by default when you load the Maps Javascript API but must be explicitly specified through use of a libraries bootstrap parameter.
See the Libraries Overview for more information.
You can enable the display of weather data or cloud imagery on your map via the WeatherLayer and CloudLayer classes of the google.maps.weather library. Enabling the cloud layer will add cloud coverage imagery to your map, visible at zoom levels 0 through 6. Enabling the weather layer will show current weather conditions from weather.com on your map, including icons that denote sun, clouds, rain and so on. Clicking on the weather icon for a particular area will open an info window with detailed data such as current humidity and wind conditions, as well as a four-day forecast. You can access this detailed data through the featureDetails property of the WeatherMouseEvent object. The below example detects when you click on an icon, and displays the current temperature at that location.
