Tempest helps consumers with access to the weather industry's most cutting-edge technology and data science.

FREMONT, CA: WeatherFlow announces the availability of the Tempest Weather System, the first home weather monitoring and forecasting system that leverages intelligent weather technology to offer precise, real-time weather data for personal and home use. The Tempest System integrates state-of-the-art sensors and a sleek, wireless design with WeatherFlow's proprietary modeling abilities to seamlessly present validated weather data and enhanced forecasts. The data is integrated into the Tempest App, available for iOS and Android devices, with an Apple Watch version to be launched this fall.

WeatherFlow uses a massive amount of data along with powerful machine learning techniques to improve its forecast model. Each customer then receives a personalized forecast that becomes even more accurate over time. Better data and forecasts then result in a host of positive outcomes. Beyond the direct advantages to a Tempest owner from a better forecast, the collective data set assists with broader issues, including electric grid management, wildfire mitigation, and help offer a climate record.

Tempest is compatible with popular smart home platforms, including Google Assistant, Amazon Alexa, and IFTTT. The System will soon add integration with Samsung SmartThings, Siri Shortcuts, and many more. Users can automate several functions, including modifying irrigation schedules based on fall or forecasted rain, outdoor weather conditions to control usage of indoor energy, or adjusting awning and shade positions based on ambient light, solar radiation, or wind. Creative applications are boundless.

The Tempest App offers more than 15 weather measurements, including temperature, lightning activity, UV index, and wind speed. Users can view, share, and export climate data through customizable graphs and charts for accurate weather monitoring. The Tempest Weather System is available now for direct purchase for $329 within the US, with international shipping expected to open in early 2021.

WeatherFlow is a leader in private sector weather technology, with over two decades of experience developing and applying progressive data modeling and forecasting techniques. The company currently operates the most advanced industrial-grade weather station network of any private entity in the world.
