Weather Underground recueille les informations non seulement des services météorologiques nationaux mais également d’un réseau de stations météorologiques d’enthousiastes de la météorologie. Il distribue ces données et les prévisions météorologiques à travers le monde.
COMMUNITY POWERED WEATHER
The new Weather Underground Android app provides the world’s most accurate hyper-local weather forecasts in addition to interactive radar, satellite maps, and severe weather alerts. Powered by our unique community of weather enthusiasts reporting live data from personal weather stations in their own backyards, this crowd-sourced data generates forecasts targeted to your precise location. Our 33,000+ personal weather stations report the most localized weather conditions. The data that we collect from our user-owned weather stations fills in the gaps between the airport weather stations that other weather services rely upon to generate forecasts – meaning our data is generated from actual data points in your neighborhood.
