SAN FRANCISCO--(CustomWeather, Inc., a specialized provider of high resolution weather forecast and alert services, announces the availability of its unique Global Real-Time Monitoring technology for real-time or near-real-time meteorological estimations, ranging from wind power at wind farms to current temperatures for energy trading.)--
Some in the weather industry describe the limited real-time data sources from established weather stations (often at local airports) as “crippling” due to limited and incomplete coverage. CustomWeather has developed technology to offer improved forecasting and monitoring in areas without reporting stations. CustomWeather’s Real-Time Monitoring estimates a multitude of real-time data, including temperature, wind, pressure, humidity and more with incredible accuracy, resulting in the ability to establish and identify key weather data for the forecasting process.
CustomWeather CEO, Geoff Flint, states, “We’ve created a product that gives clients a picture of the weather happening right now anywhere in the world, gathered not just from weather stations but from satellites and rapid update model data. We’ve filled in the gaps for areas previously lacking coverage from traditional weather stations. Our data is helpful to a wide range of companies seeking risk mitigation or asset monitoring, including insurance companies, utilities, wind farms and even phone manufacturers that wish to estimate elevation from current pressure data.”
The value of CustomWeather’s estimator technology becomes even more apparent when considering an approaching weather event that follows a path that is largely unpopulated, and therefore devoid of weather collection data. For instance, many powerful weather events originate and travel over the open ocean, or take form in remote, inhospitable regions. CustomWeather’s technology overcomes these obstacles. The ability to calculate weather conditions in those regions results in faster and more accurate storm tracking and forecasting.
