Reports for 50,000+ Weather Stations
We are your complete weather information source. Through research and government connections we have access to real-time data feeds from a multitude of mesonets around the world and we are adding more stations all the time. Know of a station not yet in our system? Let us know!
Model Forecasts for any spot on Earth
We enable you to simply click on the map and generate a forecast for any point on the globe. Other weather services think it’s fine to pull an observation or a forecast from a point that’s "close enough" leading to large errors in forecast accuracy. Not only do we generate the forecast for WHERE YOU ARE GOING, we offer multiple model choices to build your confidence in the prediction.
Anyone, anywhere can quickly and easily provide a report of conditions. This crowdsourced data feed provides ground truth for a user’s specific activity. Rating and filtering algorithms help maximize the accuracy of each report.
Organize and Share Weather Data through MyWeather
With so much real-time and forecasted data available to you, we have enabled customizable data folders under your MyWeather section to quickly return to saved station lists, map layers, and content for your area. Made a killer weather profile? Share it with your friends!
Real-Time Alerts via e-mail, SMS, or mobile device
Be alerted when conditions reach thresholds that you select. Settings include: Wind Direction, high and low wind speeds, days of the week, frequency of alerts, gusts vs. averages, etc.
Precision Tides and Currents
View high and low tides as well as predicted currents for thousands of locations in an easy to use graph and tabular format.
National Weather Service Marine Watches and Warnings
The National Weather Service (NWS) issues watches and warnings for dangerous maine weather events. Activating the NWS layer enables you to see the latest marine forecasts as well as any watches or warnings that have been posted. NWS forecasts and watches and warnings can be added to your MyWeather folders for quick access. (North America Only)
We offer High Resolution NEXRAD Level 3 radar on a dynamic map interface enabling you to zoom in and pinpoint where rain and severe weather events are happening or are about to happen. In addition, we allow you to overlay observational data on top of the radar so you can see how the rain event is effecting surface conditions. (North America Only)
National Weather Service Marine Forecasts
The National Weather Service (NWS) issues marine forecasts several times per day for hundreds of marine zones. Activating the NWS layer enables you to see the latest marine forecasts as well as any watches or warnings that have been posted. NWS forecasts and watches and warnings can be added to your MyWeather folders for quick access. (North America Only)
Archive Data Graphs
We have been archiving the data for some stations as long as 25 years! Using our unique viewer, you can quickly view and find weather events from just last week to many years ago. Each day includes a daily summary of peak values reported by each weather station.
Weather Widgets for your Website or Blog
Our widgets enable anyone to quickly and freely create accurate and relevant Weather pages for any website or blog. You can customize your widget for size, color, content, and units. Simply paste the code that we provide and your visitors will thank you!
Enjoy unlimited weather alerts for both real time and forecast conditions to any number of your devices.
Pinpoint any weather feature by activating precision nautical charts that can go underneath the weather data on multiple application platforms. (North America Only)
Real Time Nowcast Observations anywhere on Earth
A Nowcast observation (Nowcast spot) is created by an algorithm that interpolates nearby observations and weighs against high resolution forecast model data. The results are surprisingly accurate and produces a unique global product that effectively fills in the gaps between existing weather stations. This proprietary algorithm is constantly being tweaked for improved accuracy and can be activated by the "Nowcast" map product or by simply clicking on a map in any open space.
Exclusive WRAMS High Resolution Forecast Model
In addition to all publicly available forecast models, we offer the WeatherFlow exclusive WRAMS model. WRAMS is a true forecast model being run and tweaked for greater accuracy by ingesting WeatherFlow's unique weather stations and dataset. Most other weather websites offer the same rehash of government models but WeatherFlow’s WRAMS model is truly unique and accurate. (North America and Regional)
High Resolution Sea Surface Currents Forecast
Our surface currents product shows an hourly forecast for water currents up to a resolution of 200m. (North America, Regional)
Sea Surface Temperatures
Global high resolution (1km) Sea Surface Temperatures are available as an overlay on all map products. This is a derived satellite product that updates once a day to eliminate cloud clutter and can provide critical data for your activity.
Forecast Alerts via e-mail, SMS, or mobile device
Be alerted when conditions are predicted to reach thresholds that you select. Choose Extended or short term forecast from a multitude of forecast models for any spot on the globe.
Model Comparison Tools
We provide a basic "best guess" model but what is really valuable is seeing how multiple models are predicting the upcoming days to build your confidence in the prediction. Several tools are available for easy model comparison such as overlaying the models with the current observations to easily see how the model is doing AND lining up time series tables to easily compare multiple model forecast outputs.
Real-Time Reports from Our Exclusive Weather Network
Our engineers design, build, install, and maintain research grade weather stations that are Meteorologist located for maximum relevance for the their target areas. With over 30 years of experience in the harsh marine environments, our stations are built to last. Clients from the National Hurricane Center to the America's Cup have come to us because our data is so reliable. Better Data. Better Decisions.
Meteorologist Daily Forecast Briefing
We employ our own staff of Meteorologists who issue site-specific weather briefings. Our staff has over 50 combined years of experience forecasting local wind patterns and consistently provide the most precise wind forecasts available. Forecasts are issued daily on a seasonal basis depending on region. (North America Only)
Archive Data Download
We have been archiving the data for some stations as long as 25 years! Using our unique viewer, you can quickly find and view weather events from just last week to many years ago. Once you have located the time of interest, you can easily download the data to analyze it yourself!
