Changing The Future of Forecasting
With Crowdsourced Weather Network

Weather is all-encompassing and global. Our daily responses to the weather should be inclusive.

The Weathernews mission has always been to continuously create new solutions and services that provide safer, more complete scientific and human weather information. We are pioneers - for our consumers and for our planet. Our new "weather network" is our latest offering.

Long a global leader in cross platform usage, Weathernews uses smartphone apps, mobile/home weather stations, and hyper-local weather reports from people on the ground. We combine local crowdsourced observation data with official meteorological data. When we add our deep technical history and expertise to it, we provide better weather every day.

Our unique Crowdsourced Weather Model and the most current weather forecasting

Our global social network participation and hardware weather sensor network are increasing enormously - and daily. Think of it as "compound weather interest." The more data we have, the more we can create. At Weathernews, a core belief is that more weather data is better. So, we are gathering more and creating more. Our advanced and unique algorithms analyze these new and diverse data sets and put them into our existing computer forecasting models. This enables us to deliver the most current forecasts in the world to smartphones, the web and TV.


With over 20,000,000 downloads and 8,000,000 active weather reporters, Weathernews is one of the most popular mobile apps in Japan. The Weathernews app not only provides the top quality professional weather forecasts and information, but social weather functions and data.
