Global Weather Corporation Named the World's Most Accurate Temperature Forecast Provider

BOULDER, Colo., Jan. 29, 2014 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- According to a new study, Global Weather Corporation (GWC) provides the world's most accurate temperature forecasts. ForecastWatch, the leader in third-party weather forecast accuracy assessment, reports that GWC forecasts have the lowest error of those reviewed in both the U.S. and Europe for the period 1-9 days, using a metric of daily high temperature. 

A relative newcomer to the weather industry, GWC is included among the ForecastWatch rankings for the first time.  The results mark a dramatic shift in an industry that has seen little change in these rankings over the last six years.

"We formed GWC to commercialize the world's best weather forecasting technologies built around a post-processing technology developed at the National Center for Atmospheric Research," said Dr. Bill Gail, GWC's chief technology officer and incoming president of the American Meteorological Society. "Like a human meteorologist, our technology continues to learn, constantly validating our forecasts against public and private weather station observations. This capability, combined with our continued investment in R&D and persistent focus on automation, allows us to deliver the most accurate hourly weather forecasts at any location."

GWC's forecast accuracy has attracted enterprise customers in weather-sensitive industries that demand reliable and accurate forecasts. For example, accurate temperature forecasts help GWC's energy utility customers better determine load requirements to plan power generation, potentially reducing costs for each utility by millions of dollars annually.  GWC's forecasts of road surface conditions promise to reduce delays and accidents for commercial vehicles – issues that cost the industry over $10 billion per year.

"Our product portfolio continues to expand as we work toward our goal of providing the most accurate forecasts to meet the needs of diverse industries worldwide," said GWC CEO Mark Flolid. "Just two years since our entry into the market, our forecasts are receiving strong demand in markets such as energy, digital news, mobile applications, emergency services, retail and transportation."
