Every day, companies from industries such as aviation, financial services, insurance, retail, and agriculture make critical business decisions based on the weather. These decisions are only as good as a forecast itself. Surprisingly, most of today’s weather forecasting models rely on technology from the 20th century, and when applied at the local level, may only have accuracy rates of about 50%. Enter Climacell. Founded in 2015, Boston-based weather technology company aims to help the aviation industry and other verticals make better business decisions by more accurately predicting the weather through historical, real time, and forecast weather data – globally generating minute-by-minute, weather predictions at near pinpoint accuracy right to the street (or runway) level.
