Great collection of storm tracking and weather tools for Google Earth

Frank Taylor at the Google Earth Blog has posted a great round-up of the best weather-related tools for Google Earth.

The best piece of this post is the huge weather and storm tracking tools collection network link.  It contains a handful of folders with various kinds of data, which includes:

  • two global hurricane tracking tools
  • global cloud maps
  • current global lightning strikes animation
  • severe weather warning data and radar data for the US
  • a large collection of weather image overlays from TropicalAtlantic
  • weather observations for the US from WeatherBonk
  • a real-time day/night viewing tool
  • the global annual lightning flash rate map from NASA

If you enjoy following the weather, this is well worth checking out.
