If you don't like the weather in Texas, wait a few minutes. Or just click over to the Weather Channel's website for their latest interactive map which is pretty cool.

The cable channel has partnered with Microsoft to offer detailed road maps combined with satellite imagery. Now users can zoom in to get a localized view of current weather conditions; all the way down to their neighborhood.

Here is a link to the Galleria area. Check out the sliding bar that controls the view of the weather, along with tools that let users pan around the map.

Hey look, I see my car. It needs a wash...where's the rain?!
