We speak in terms of road conditions and power outage threats, not pressure and dew points.

We work with businesses across logistics, financial services, restaurant services, emergency management, academia, and summer camps, to analyze upcoming weather threats and predict impacts. We offer a suite of historical and future weather data combined with our WeatherOptics Impact Index technology.

Part of what separates us from other weather competitors is that we speak in the terms that matter most to you. We take our forecasted raw weather data, run it through our proprietary algorithms, and spit out easy-to-understand and useful weather impact information. Rather than give you data on how much snow is going to fall and when, we tell you how roads will be impacted hour by hour for an unlimited number of zip codes or routes. Rather than give you data on how strong the winds will be, we tell you the likelihood of power going out hour by hour for every location in the United States. We analyze weather and how it affects various operations to give you only the information you need, without any unnecessary extras. 

We continiously update our prediction engines to deliver the most accurate insights

When you sign up with WeatherOptics, we don’t just send you a link and call it a day. We actively work with your business to develop the tools you need. We develop new models, widgets, and algorithms as we learn more about your daily operations. We engage in open communication so that you know exactly how we come to the forecasts we do.

Most weather insight companies will either be a small team of forecasters manually making predictions or a collection of mindless computer models spitting out data. We combine our collective meteorology experience with cutting-edge machine learning algorithms to bring you the best of both worlds. We’re constantly checking our models’ outputs against our trusty intuition to ensure our forecasts are as accurate as possible.

Give it a try for a few weeks and if you don’t like what we offer, cancel for free. Seriously, we won’t charge you a dime!
