Weather Science That Works

Those are pretty hefty claims, but the science behind them works. Radar signals are used by other forecasters while ClimaCell taps into those as well but further complements its service with signals from millions of wireless devices.

Now, the firm is working on a new mathematical model that converts cell phone observations into weather data that can be used in a simulation. The model can be adapted to focus on the region, the type of weather, and the frequency of updates a subscriber wants.

The company's motto is “same weather, different forecast.” Its webpage touts that it has “500 million weather sensors at your fingertips.”
