Social Weather Mapping [smalltalkapp.com] geo-locates recent tweets in the US that contain the terms "sunny", "rainy", "snowy", "windy", and "foggy". The size of the circles are determined by the number of tweets, and are colored by its current dominant weather. As sufficient "weather" data is aggregated, it can be used to form a multi-dimensional picture of the weather and the effect is has on our lives.

More information at the Use All Five design agency blog. The data visualization is part of the just released Google Chrome Experiments website, and developed in Javascript only.

The concept of mapping weather tweets was also used in Twitter Weather Map. Also on Flowing Data.
