Search tip: Weather on Tablets launched! Jessica S. 7/17/12 12:33 PM
The Search Team is excited to announce that a weather visualization is available on tablets, just like it is on mobile phones.  When you type [weather] into Google on your tablet, you'll see the current weather and you can scroll through the hourly and ten-day forecast. You can also toggle the Precipitation and Wind buttons to check out the percent chance of precipitation and wind direction/speed, respectively.  It looks like this:

If you'd like to check out search tips like these on a regular basis, you can follow Google on G+ here, indicated with the hashtag #searchtips.  :)

Enjoy!

More useful and valuable than humidity is the dew point.  Because relative humidity is relative you get higher readings on crisp winter mornings than sultry summer days.  Dew point is a more objective measure.

Is the Google weather functionality supposed to work outside the US? I can't get any sensible details in Australia, either on my desktop or mobile.
