Foundational Forecast Services

Versatile services with global coverage, designed to serve most users with minimal customization

SensorWX and PointWX logos | GWC

SensorWX™ provides tuned forecasts at weather station (sensor) locations. A tuned forecast represents the best match to both historic and current conditions as measured by that sensor. Forecasts for thousands of publicly-available sensors (such as METARS) are currently accessible within our datasets, and forecasts for customer-owned sensors can be provided.

PointWX™ provides forecasts at arbitrary locations - since weather stations are not always present where people need forecasts. To do this, we generate a gridded forecast that is intelligently interpolated to provide a forecast at any requested location.

GWC consistently provides the world's most accurate temperature forecast, according to forecastwatch.1
