The internet has its own weather and you can see it on this map

When thinking of weather, usually the internet doesn’t come to mind. The internet, however, does have it's own type of weather and it is monitored like any other type of weather. The Internet Weather Map or IWM is a free map website that will let you see how the latency of the World Wide Web is trending at the moment.

The internet is constantly growing every day and if there are going to be delays, then the public wants to know. You can access the IWM site and check how the internet is operating in almost any city in the world. You also have the option of searching your own domain, to make sure everything is running smoothly.

The Internet Weather Map operates with the help of volunteers all around the globe who submit their feedback as they surf the web. The IWM may not be completely accurate because of the thousands of new domains being created every day, but it is able to give you a general understanding of the overall performance of the internet. The site will also automatically refresh every 60 seconds, so you can keep it open on a spare monitor.

So, when you wake up in the morning to check the weather, don’t forget to check http://www.internetweathermap.com/map too.
