About The Weather Company

Weather may be in our name but that’s not the whole story. What started as an idea in a basement studio, has grown into one of the world’s most trusted brands and the world’s most accurate forecaster1—distinctions we don’t take for granted and work tirelessly to uphold. And as our world continues to evolve, so do we. In fact, we’re just getting started.

In today’s rapidly changing world, there is no shortage of challenges to solve. Weather is becoming more erratic, consumer behavior and expectations are shifting, and businesses are trying to survive amidst unprecedented social and economic unrest. It’s a good thing we have a history of running towards problems.

Since our inception nearly five decades ago, The Weather Company has combined human, meteorological expertise with trusted technology to drive progress. And while we must continue to innovate to keep pace, our mission has never wavered.
