Check the Weather  

Mill Valley, CA – July 23, 2020 – This month, CustomWeather looks back upon the introduction of its Cloud Weather Services™, which introduced a totally new way to request easy point access in real-time to very large gridded data sets, without requiring the download of complete government model data sets.


In 2015, CustomWeather was the first weather company to introduce Cloud Weather Services™.  Cloud Weather Services™ enables customers to get the exact information that they need through a web service without having to download massive model data sets from the government. In addition, Cloud Weather Services™ enables real-time comparison between models, and the ability to create plugins for value-add variables based on raw data from the models. Some of the value-add variables include a hail index and even wind direction in degrees, which is normally reported as just U and V vectors in government models.


Cloud Weather Services™ allows easy access to many obscure model variables which are critical to specific industries. Examples are short-wave radiation for the solar industry, and soil moisture at various depths for agriculture. Access is made simple via an API, available in both XML and JSON.
