Google is adding the weather forecast to Google Maps with worldwide temperature displays and conditions to make travel and activity planning easier.

To add the weather feature to Google Maps, users can hover over the widget in the upper right corner of Google Maps and select the weather layer from the list of options.

When zoomed out, a map will appear with current weather conditions from weather.com for various locations, with icons to show whether it's sunny, cloudy and rainy in certain areas.

Users can also tell if it’s day or night around the world by the sun and moon icons.

Clicking on the weather icon for a particular city will open an info window with detailed data such as current humidity and wind conditions, as well as a forecast for the next four days.
