It's been a feature on my Live devices (both 740 and GO1535) for some time. You can see snow and wind and the like frequently here in Colorado. If you back out to a 2D view, you'll also discover that they only put the symbols up in the areas impacted, not just all over the screen.

Go 50; Go 520
But it's a pain in the ass (can I say that? :lol: ) when there is NO snow on your route or in the surrounding region but you see the bloody snow icons all over the map.

It supposed to be a near-term forecast, best I can tell, not what's already on the ground. Same with wind. It comes up quickly here, and if we get a high wind advisory from the NWS, the little wind sock icons appear before it actually happens.
