Helping Business Weather the Storm

What Does Spring Look Like to Developers?

Developers look at weather differently than meteorologists. My favorite way is to use historical weather data. I compare different years of data, producing an output that helps answer questions that might otherwise be impossible. Applications might be forensic meteorology, insurance and reinsurance, agriculture and logistics companies. If you want to know how weather may or may have not affected an outcome, WDT's SkyWise products are where to start!

You can now find the weather stations nearest to a location or event of interest and query our entire archive of observations. This can be useful for those who need to know what happened with the weather and when exactly it happened. I've shared some code over on my personal blog linked below. Give it a read!
