Improve your local forecast accuracy by up to 78% with Xcast technology

World's most accurate local forecasts

Industries that rely on accurate, reliable weather and environmental insights can optimize operations further with Xcast, a proprietary Xweather technology that uses ground-truth data from your local sensors to produce incredibly accurate short-term forecasts.

Using just two sensors at a Californian vineyward, Xcast delivered a 78% improvement in short-term temperature forecast accuracy. Xcast reduced the number of large errors (greater than 2.5 °C) in 24-hour temperature forecasts by up to 59% for a district-heating customer.

Powered by local observations

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

Xcast hyperlocal forecast

Xcast uses machine learning, trained on your local sensor observations, to produce highly accurate short-term forecasts.
