A quick way to check the weather : Google Maps

Google has just updated the Google Maps with a weather overlay that provides users with current weather condition around the world and forecasts for the next five days as well.
All one has to do is go to our area of the world and select the weather layer on the top right hand corner of the page to get the picture shown above.
The weather reports on Google Maps’ are sourced from and  U.S. Naval Research Lab empowers the feature that shows cloud coverage on the map.
For people who want a more detailed satellite images and forecast I still suggest the IMD website
