Xweather Insight

The weather confidence platform for optimizing daily business operations and enhancing preparedness and resilience against severe weather.

Solve your weather challenges

For weather-sensitive and weather-dependent industries like aviation, renewable energy, utilities, mining, and maritime, Xweather Insight provides the measurements, forecasts, analysis, and alerts needed to optimize daily operations, improve preparedness and resilience against severe weather, and enhance safety, efficiency, and sustainability. 

Xweather Insight comprises a set of modules—Protect, Explore, and Observe—supported by Xcast technology. These modules are available through a flexible subscription model that makes it easy to configure the service to your needs.

Plan with confidence with highly accurate enhanced forecasts

Xcast

Xcast is a machine learning-based weather prediction technology (MLWP) that underpins the Xweather Insight service. Xcast technology enhances short-term forecast accuracy and produces unique actionable insights by using local measurements and observations.

Xcast-powered hyperlocal forecasts are up to 50% more accurate than the short-term forecasts generated by traditional numerical weather prediction (NWP) models. What's more, Xcast also reduces the number of large errors (greater than 2.5 °C) in 24-hour temperature forecasts by up to 59%.

Powered by local observations

Xcast is powered by precise, up-to-the-minute observations from on-site sensors at your key locations.
