Weather Source

Weather Source operates one of the most comprehensive weather information systems available in the world today. We have global reach and support a very wide range of weather parameters and features from real time extreme weather, to seasonal climate anomalies, to wildfires, air quality, and everything in between. Our flagship OnPoint Suite of data products provides hour-by-hour and day-by-day weather from decades in the past, up to current time, and seamlessly into a forward looking forecast.

About Dataset

Historical Weather Data: OnPoint Weather Historical data provides hourly and daily weather values from the year 2000 to present. This database is a stable source of historical information because once the data is archived no changes or edits are made.

Historical Peril Data: Historical Peril data includes Tropical Storms, Hurricanes, Storm Surge, Severe Thunderstorms, Flooding, Heavy Rain, Wildfires, and Hail.

OnPoint Risk Analytics: This service provides climate and peril risk scores by dynamically calculating the peril frequency rate and probability of each risk on a global scale. Available climate and peril risks include:

  • Hurricanes/Typhoons
  • Extratropical Storms
  • Hail (U.S. Only)
  • Tornadoes (U.S. Only)
  • River Flooding
  • Flash Flooding
  • Storm Surge Flooding
  • Wildfires
  • Earthquakes
  • Volcanoes
  • Sea Level Rise
  • Tsunamis

Probability & Risk Forecasts for Extreme Weather & Perils: This forecast service provides a forward forecast view of up to four weeks (28-days) with probability and confidence levels for extreme weather extreme weather events and perils such as hurricanes, tornadoes, cyclones, severe convective weather, etc.

  • Forecast Based Risk - In the near-term time range (i.e., out to two weeks forward), the NOAA, GFS and ECMWF ensembles (i.e., forecast model runs) are used to augment the peril and risk probabilities. These forecasts provide a forward view of up to 15-days forward.
  • Climatology Based Risk - This longer probability view (i.e., days 15-28) is based on Weather Source climatology models where Weather Source has used its deep database of extreme weather and perils to generate climatology probability and risk information for extreme weather events and perils.

Alerting Service for Extreme Weather & Perils (DWAS): The Dynamic Weather Alerting Service (DWAS) allows users the ability to configure and receive alerts for any weather parameter or severe weather alerts issued by various government agencies such as the U.S. National Weather Service and Canadian Ready Alerts. You can also configure user-defined alerts. For example:

  • Alert me when the flood impact index exceeds 5 at this location.
  • Alert me when wind speed is 20mph + precipitation + temperature below 32F.
