Micro-weather forecasting platform updated to 'next level'
Hyper-local weather technology company ClimaCell (Boston, MA) has announced the launch of the latest version of its HyperCast hyper accurate weather forecasting platform for companies in weather-sensitive industries such as aviation, construction, outdoor events, on-demand companies, drones, energy, and transportation.

Supporting minute-by-minute, street-by-street-level forecasts, HyperCast is based on the company's Weather Operating System (Weather OS), which combines "Weather-of-Things" data - including cell tower signals, and data from connected cars, airplanes, drones and IoT devices - with AI-driven models that analyze the data at resolutions of hundreds of meters and minutes.

The new version of HyperCast offers an enhanced user experience, updated infrastructure for quick deployment of new features - such as impact analysis - and new layers, map views, and timeline.

"Reliable weather forecasts are essential, not a 'nice-to-have,'" says Effie Artidi, Chief Product Officer at ClimaCell. "Knowing when to expect snow or high-speed winds, or where exactly lightning will strike, and when, is critical to businesses."

"It impacts everything from staffing overtime to maintenance needs, supply and demand expectations, customer satisfaction, and, most importantly, safety," says Artidi. "It's time businesses have the level of accuracy they need with insights tailored to their specific  business questions."   

In May the company unveiled its stealth mode Numerical Weather Prediction (NWP) division, operating from Boulder, CO, and its microscale and on-demand NWP platform, ClimaCell Bespoke Atmospheric Model (CBAM). Last month it launched its Road Risk Score, a rating system of how current and forecasted weather conditions impact road conditions on a road-by-road level across the United States.
