Earth: Global Weather Conditions

If you are as nerdy as me, instead of reading weather forecasts you go directly to the source of information to get weather updates. Straight to Met.ie to look at the satellite images before you make a decision on whether to wear a rain jacket or not on that night out (and yes I am that nerdy).

However, I have recently started checking a new source for my weather updates. Earth is an interactive map of global weather conditions. Forecast by supercomputers, and updated every three hours, Earth visualizes Air and Ocean conditions across the globe. With the ability to easily see conditions such as wind speed, temperature, humidity, along with preciptiable and cloud water allows for an interactive and fun way of finding out what the weather will be like. So have a look, but beware of loosing hours examining current weather conditions on the planet.
