Pinpoint Weather – Localize Your Forecast

from the microclimates dept

I live in an area of microclimates, where the weather can be completely different around the corner. So, I know that general area weather forecasts can often be useless. It appears that many other people have realized this as well, and there are a bunch of services now offering localized, personalized weather forecasts, that go into much greater detail than the old National Weather Service details. As the technology gets better and cheaper, people in the industry say it’s only going to get better – to the point where your mobile phone may beep at you if you’re heading into inclement weather.

Try the arctic circle

Clouds can go around the world in a few hours up there, so temperatures in the summer can go from sunny, calm 70F to 80 mph blizzards at 30F within 15 minutes. Tides also make beaches grow and shrink by miles. Weather forecasts are rather useless. The air is very clear, so you can literally see storm systems coming at you like a fast-motion movie.
