WeatherBonk: Real time super local weather

One of the worst things about weather reports is that they give a few temperatures across the city and you have to guess what’s in between. Often it’s just just an average of the other temps because of elevation, wind, etc and so you are kind of on your own. WeatherBonk is changing all of that by mixing real time local weather reports with google maps so you can see exactly, sometimes down to the block, what the weather is going to be like in the exact part of town you want to know about. And what it’s like right now, not just what the high and low for the day is going to be. Here’s the LA Map. Now mix in text based reports and local web cams and you are set. Battelle is right, I think we’re going to be seeing a lot more where this came from.
