Weather Source was founded to help clients leverage weather and climate technologies for business intelligence. In 2015, we started development of the OnPoint Platform and in 2017 we released the first versions of the OnPoint data products. Since then, we have provided weather and climate insights to the majority of Fortune-ranked companies.
In December 2019, Ontario-based Pelmorex Corp., the third largest weather company in the world and the owner of The Weather Network, acquired a majority interest in Weather Source. In addition, Pelmorex provided significant capital to fund Weather Source’s rapid growth. Weather Source’s B2B expertise, industry-leading data, product vision, and explosive growth is a perfect complement to Pelmorex’s B2C expertise, leadership positions in Canada and Spain, expansive user base, trove of rich data, and team of meteorologists, data scientists, and developers. This strategic partnership has enabled both companies to provide the most comprehensive weather and climate data available worldwide as well as specialized solutions for any size or type of business.
Weather Source’s mission is to make hyper-local weather and climate data accessible around the globe and across industries. Our passion is working with companies to leverage weather and climate data to develop weather strategies that ultimately reduce waste, increase ROI, fine-tune logistics, optimize marketing strategy, and improve resource planning.
In the U.S. alone, weather accounts for more than $600 billion a year in lost revenue. The Weather Source team brings breadth of industry knowledge with a combined 75 years of meteorology and climatology expertise. We are data experts dedicated to developing advanced, high-quality, and easy-to-use products and services that empower businesses.
