This incredible tool will show forecasts and hazards all along your Google map route, using our forecasts that we are updating constantly.

Below is a snapshot of the tool in action from Thursday, December 5. We said that we wanted to leave Fort Kent at 1pm, heading for Bangor. As you can see below, there was a threat of icing with temperatures hovering around freezing from Fort Kent to just before Millinocket, then as you got near Bangor toward 5pm, it changed to all rain with 39°F in Bangor.
