MesoWest provides a KMZ file that contains the most recent observations within the last hour. This file can be downloaded and opened using Google Earth. This file will display the observations at their given locations, and clicking on the observations will link to data in the MesoWest database. This product is updated every hour with the latest information.

Make sure to use Google Earth 5.0 or greater when accessing this file, as previous versions will not work. Also, if you are only interested in one region, turn off other regions to increase the loading speed. Loading for the entire continental United States and Alaska can sometimes be slow.
