Google Puts A Little Sunshine Into Weather Results

Google have been tinkering with their mobile search results again (for Android & iPhone) so that when you search for 'weather' you get something new.
That something new is a rather fetching looking interactive forecast that is automatically centred on your current location. You can of course change the location to somewhere else. The forecast covers the next 12 hours and it's broken down hour by hour. There's also a longer range forecast covering up to four days ahead.
The Google Blog explained the change "We'd been wanting to build a fun, useful, app-like way to display weather information on our weather search results page in the mobile browser ... So we pulled together a user experience designer and team of engineers and built a new weather search results snippet that lets you actually play with the results".
