The Weather Twitter Map
Wettervolke is a nice Google Maps based application to view the current weather and local Twitter messages about the weather.
The current weather conditions are displayed on a Google Map using the standard weather map symbols. The current temperature is also displayed directly on the map. As well as the current weather conditions it is possible to view a forecast for the rest of the day and for tomorrow's weather.
Overlaid on the map is a Twitter weather window which displays the latest Tweets about the weather from your location. The weather symbols on the map update automatically when you pan and zoom the map. However to view the local weather Tweets users need to use the search box to position the map at the correct location.
