AI-Driven Weather Data: New to Some, But It Has Been Driving CustomWeather’s Success for Years

Sponsored by Businesswire

The buzz surrounding Artificial Intelligence (AI)-Driven Weather is
relatively new. But at CustomWeather, a quiet trailblazer in the
development of hyper-accurate precision weather data for almost 20
years, AI has played a fundamental role for years in the development of
its numerous weather products, which it provides to a boutique list of
clients. Geoff Flint, Co-Founder and CEO of CustomWeather comments: “The
first question that I am asked when I show up at a conference is almost
always: ‘Is your system AI-driven?’ The answer is, Absolutely! Our
system has always depended upon artificial intelligence and continues to
use artificial intelligence to make significant forecasting
improvements.” Companies are realizing that the power of artificial
intelligence (AI) in weather can help them to see business savings and
improvements that they never thought possible.

AI has been one of the keys to CustomWeather leading the way in
hyper-local forecasting for several years, most recently as part of the
forecast product, CW100, which forecasts weather variables such as
near-surface winds and temperatures at 100 meter resolution. Geoff Flint
explains, “For years, we have offered a statistical forecast model with
training files. Essentially, it is an artificial intelligence model that
learns from the mistakes and biases of other models. Even our CW100 or
USL forecasts utilize AI to learn which forecast models have been
performing best and the CW100 model weighs the inputs from those models
accordingly, constantly improving itself. AI is helping us to refine our
weather forecasts every single day.”

CustomWeather is constantly innovating and exploring new ways to provide
weather data and services to improve and enhance business performance,
public safety and preparedness. For more information, visit
