Google has been lighting it up as of late. Just yesterday, we told you about Google’s Cloud Print capabilities for the iPhone, and now the search giant has rolled out something new that’s closer to its roots.

You might have already been taking advantage of Google’s cool location based weather results, but they’ve added hour-by-hour forecast results to the fray as well.

That’s right, not only can you quickly locate the forecast for your area, you can also alter a slider for an hour-by-hour breakdown featuring real time weather adjustments…

To try it out, head over to google.com on your iPhone and search for ‘weather’. Google should prompt you to use your current location if it doesn’t already have you locked in, and then bring you to some familiar looking weather driven search results.

You will, however, notice one slight difference — the addition of a slider control to note the hourly changes in weather. Google has even gone the extra mile by adding subtle gradients to simulate night and day based on the slider’s position.

Google’s weather search has always been a great place to look if you were in need of a high-level weather overview; with this latest addition, it’s evident that Google wants to look at weather searching in a more serious and low-level manner.

Will you use Google search for your forecasting needs?
