Reasons to Invest

Our fast growing company has solid traction and a clear path toward greater success, with more than 60,000 paying customers and millions of users. In three years, our annual revenue has grown to over $8m, and we are just getting started.
Weather has a huge impact on $85 Trillion Global GDP. The current market for weather data and decision support already exceeds $7 billion and the addressable market is much larger - and growing. Climate Change is fueling demand for more and better weather data. Our products are disrupting the existing, fragmented market and positioning us to take advantage.
Defensible Proprietary Advantages. Our powerful Nearcast Technology™ leverages strategic patents and proprietary data to guarantee better results for customers. Our expanding network of Tempest Hardware systems (over 35,000 already deployed) combined with our AI-based weather modeling gives us an unrivaled advantage over would-be competitors.

A weather technology company built on better data.

Weather has a vast effect on the world’s economy. Given the sheer scale, it’s no surprise there is a large market for better information to help better manage the impact of weather.  There is already $7 billion in annual revenue generated by private firms helping to manage this impact.  And in a world where the climate is changing, and data increasingly drives decisions, the need for better weather data and decision support is growing quickly.  The individuals, businesses and government entities paying for help now are demanding better. And those beginning to search for solutions expect even more.


Everyone is curious about the weather, but we need to provide unique weather data and better decision support to create viable revenue streams. In addition, we must provide all our customers – everyone from the fisherman to the homeowner to the insurance company - with solutions that reduce costs or create other benefits. That is precisely what we deliver.


The proof of our potential is in our current success.  Our consistent revenue growth is due to (i) sales of our Tempest Hardware system, a low-cost high-margin personal weather station with a powerful weather app; (ii) recurring subscription revenue from our Personal Apps and (iii) recurring revenue for WeatherFlowPro, weather data and decision support delivered via software as a service (SaaS) and our API.


Our patented Nearcast Technology™ provides all our customers with point-specific weather information where and when they need it.  And we guarantee a tangible, measurable impact; it is clear they are getting great value from our service.


Our team includes Ph.D. atmospheric and data scientists, along with business executives and engineers.  Collectively we have vast experience in the weather industry and in launching successful start-ups in other markets. This team includes several founders who have provided the investment to propel WeatherFlow to this maturing state.  We are raising capital to accelerate growth and open up new markets while continuing to develop proprietary cutting edge products.


THE PROBLEM


Weather has a large and costly impact, which is growing larger.

Each year severe weather kills over 60,000 people and the cost to the global economy is more than $1 trillion.  And severe events are only a small fraction of the impact on a global economy of more than $85 trillion. Weather has a vast effect on practically everything on the planet, from growing the world’s food supply, to managing the power grid; to personal costs like cooling and heating your home, or managing your garden.


Regardless of the cause, there is wide agreement and concern that the climate is changing, with risks and costs growing ever larger.  We can’t eliminate the cost of weather, but both businesses and individuals can better plan for its impact and likely capture hundreds of billions of dollars in savings and benefits.  And we can save more lives and make better decisions for the planet’s future in the process.

THE SOLUTION


Our Nearcast Technology™ is a unique and powerful answer

Our patented technology provides our customers with point-specific weather information where and when they need it - what is happening now, what happened yesterday, and a forecast fine-tuned for later today and tomorrow - all with guaranteed accuracy.  Combined with industry-specific decision support, our customers realize a real and measurable gain for a simple reason: better data leads to better decisions.




Nearcast Technology™ is a layered solution protected by strategic patents and proprietary data.  These layers include: 


  • Better Hardware. Our revolutionary design includes best-of-breed sensors with no moving parts and extremely simple set-up. It requires near-zero maintenance and works with a growing list of third-party applications. Because the design appeals to weather enthusiasts and smart home aficionados as well as average homeowners, the Tempest Network has snowballed to over 30,000 systems in 125 countries and is on a trajectory to become one of the largest weather observing networks.

  • Better Observational Data. In addition to our Tempest Network, we ingest a massive amount of data from all conceivable sources, including satellites, radars, government surface networks and weather-equipped aircraft, as well as exclusive data from the WFn ProNet and other private sources. Curated and standardized by our team of meteorologists and atmospheric and data scientists, there is no better input to a weather data system.

  • Better Modeling. Our AI-based weather modeling combines unique data assimilation, numerical modeling and machine learning. We source the best available models from the major national weather services, including from the US and Europe. Initialized with our curated data sets, we also run our own high-resolution physics-based numerical weather forecasts. We train our AI-based output models to produce precise point-specific forecasts informed by the observations. The result is the best conceivable weather information available.

  • Better Decision Support. To turn this better weather data into better decisions, we provide our customers powerful mobile applications & SaaS tools. Via our API, our data also integrates directly with the tools our customers already use.  Whether deciding when to cover their plants, quickly pay an insurance claim, prepare for a drop in wind power or move an aircraft carrier,  we guarantee our customers will achieve a clear and measurable return on their investment in our service.

THE MARKET


Demand for weather data and decision support is growing 


Weather has a large effect on the world's $85 trillion economy.  Sectors like agriculture, energy, insurance, transportation and tourism are just a few of the many markets strongly impacted, and that doesn't include growing sectors like unmanned aviation (drones), driverless cars and other nascent business models affected by weather.  It’s easy to see that hundreds of billions could be saved and the world would be better off if crop yields were greater, planes stayed on schedule, and your insurance claim was paid without a conversation.  


Climate Change is increasing the impact of weather while also raising awareness about the costs involved, which naturally leads to a desire to manage them.  Moreover, the world is increasingly data-driven, a trend that’s generating new demand for more and better weather information. 


The current market for private sector weather data and decision support is already greater than $7B. We are well positioned to disrupt the existing market and lead the way as customers demand new data and tools that make a difference.


OUR TRACTION


We have already built a strong company with powerful proven solutions


  • Over 3 million unique users utilize our freemium consumer weather services
  • Over 20,000 consumers currently pay to subscribe to our premium consumer services.
  • More than 45,000 people have purchased Tempest Systems or other hardware-centric products over the past two years. 
  • Over 500 business and government customers

What we do


We have proprietary data and patented technology

We provide the most precise information available everywhere you need it - what the weather conditions are now, what happened yesterday, and the forecast for later today and tomorrow.  This enables us to deliver better, more actionable weather information. Our differentiators: 


  • Tempest Hardware, a revolutionary weather station system so advanced it’s simple
  • Data from our Tempest Network, a fast-growing observing network
  • Exclusive, perpetual access to WFn ProNet, a reliable industrial grade network
  • Nearcast Technology™, based on IP and know-how developed over three decades
  • Decades of collective experience managing weather observing networks
  • Unique track record creating and delivering better weather data (not just hardware)
  • Years of experience creating better decision support based on better weather data

Everyone utilizes weather information, but paying for better weather data and decision support requires a use case and a solution that together yield cost reductions and other benefits. For example:


Our Personal Apps help anglers catch more fish, sailors win more races, and drone pilots safely operate their aircraft.  Our subscribers pay for our service because the cost is a small but critical part of the overall investment in their passion.  We have proven that a fast-growing portion of the 1.5 billion people using smartphone apps will pay for a premium weather service.


*This testimonial may not be representative of the experience of other customers and is not a guarantee of future performance or success.


With our Tempest Hardware systems, we are capturing a large share of the existing market for weather station hardware - because Tempest is much more than hardware. Tempest is both the best hardware solution available AND a complete weather service backed by data science that delivers a guaranteed better forecast.


*This testimonial may not be representative of the experience of other customers and is not a guarantee of future performance or success.


Since we have created a whole new product category with Tempest, we are growing the weather station market. Tempest helps save energy in the home with only basic smart home implementations. Our new expanding market includes gardeners, smart home mavens, parents concerned about family safety and education, and everyone who wants to contribute data for the benefit of others.


*This testimonial may not be representative of the experience of other customers and is not a guarantee of future performance or success.


With WeatherFlowPro we help our business and government customers save money.  For many of them the stakes are very high, and they are focused on receiving a strong return on their investment in our data and decision support.


For example, our utility customers benefit in multiple ways. Many are focused on their individual customers saving energy, promoting and even subsidizing the sale of Tempest Systems. The additional data not only benefits individuals in saving, it also enables local operators and the utility grid managers to predict demand more accurately, so they can allocate energy more efficiently. Our tools allow them to better understand supply from solar and wind as well. Combined, the result is a cost savings for individuals and overall energy savings at the regional level.


*This testimonial may not be representative of the experience of other customers and is not a guarantee of future performance or success.


Likewise, our insurance company customers want to understand what just happened, which reduces their costs and increases their customer satisfaction by deploying resources and paying claims quickly and accurately.  Over time we help insurance companies better understand their risks.  Property managers want to know the conditions at their properties.  Farmers need to optimally manage their crops. The applications are endless, and only WeatherFlow can provide such a comprehensive service.

Media Coverage


Making a difference on our planet


We’re building a profitable business that is also a force for good.

Our mission is to help the world better understand and control the enormous impact of weather. We do this by serving businesses and consumers - and the planet - in a synergistic manner. It’s at the core of who we are and what we do.


For example, a single Tempest helps save energy in the home while also helping utility grid managers in a region allocate energy more efficiently.  The more Tempest systems in a region, the more we are able to help.  These savings add up on a global scale.  


Government weather agencies like NOAA perform the critical public service of keeping everybody safe.  They provide important regional warnings and we don't compete.  We only support their effort by displaying NOAA warnings and proudly providing free access to Tempest data and model output, an important gesture as government budgets remain constrained.  


We also make our data freely available to the weather and climate research communities. Our founders are also co-founders in Synoptic PBC, a public benefit corp focused on making all useful environmental data available to everyone. 


We are proud to help and pleased that our partnerships with NOAA and others are only helping us build a large and profitable business. Beyond specific partnerships, we’re committed to the environmental, social and governance (ESG) concepts embodied by the B-Labs and other like minded efforts.


The business model


Unique solutions and defensible advantages result in multiple, complementary streams of revenue

We deliver information through powerful apps and software tools, including via an API.  While our product suite is blended, our revenue comes from three main categories:


  • The Tempest Hardware system is a low-cost high-margin personal weather station with a powerful weather app, generating upfront revenue.  It is primarily sold to consumers but also valued by business customers, a trend that will accelerate with expanded Tempest product offerings.  

  • Our family of Personal Apps provides recurring annual subscription revenue. The rapidly growing Tempest Network and improved forecasts based on Nearcast Technology™ are creating strong growth with existing apps and opportunities for new ones. 

  • WeatherFlow Pro, our business platform, supplies powerful weather data and decision support through our SaaS tools and via API.  This service product centered on recurring revenue also fuels purchase of weather station hardware, creating more real-time data and improved forecasts.


Our three revenue streams are highly complementary. Revenue received upfront reduces our need for growth capital. Our Personal Apps rely on the same base data and technology that powers WeatherFlow Pro, with both generating annually recurring revenue.  Tempest System sales increase the data available to improve all our products, and the needs of all customers have an increasing effect on the demand for more weather station installations.  We are near the beginning of a powerful virtuous cycle, fueling growth.

why invest


Thoughts on our Mission


To our new investors, 


We are at an important inflection point, both in terms of growing a valuable company and having a meaningful impact on the world.


We have great revenue traction and an agile, passionate team.  We’ve created unique and defensible proprietary advantages with our better, more valuable weather data.  And we also have the proven ability to create the apps and software - the decision support tools - to bring that data to life.  


It is time to bring in more investment capital and in StartEngine we have discovered a great way to partner with our customers and other individuals who appreciate and understand our mission.  We have always believed that we were on a shared journey, and we have fielded many requests about investing.  StartEngine is the best platform to allow like-minded individuals who understand our goals to play a part in our success.


We must have a positive impact on the global community.  Nonetheless, first and foremost, we need to deliver value to our customers.  The individuals, businesses, and government entities paying for our services do so because they are receiving a clear return on their expense.  We have shown that we can focus on customers' needs while also helping others and the environment. Doing right by all stakeholders is simply good business.   


We intend to create tremendous value for our customers, our employees, and all of our investors.  And we will make sure to do our part for the planet.  Please join us!

Calling all beta testers

4 months ago

Thank you! With help from many of you, our StartEngine campaign continues to gain momentum, and we are well on our way to reaching our offering max yet again.

We are charging forward building a great company and we continue to make progress in helping control the enormous impact of weather. Today we are sharing innovations for Tempest, our revolutionary personal weather system.

Tempest Update

Powered by environmental observations, advanced QC data processing, and proprietary forecasting capabilities, the service we provide with the Tempest App will soon be getting a significant update. We have been working tirelessly to refine and improve the service based on our innovations and community feedback. 

While we have a trusted group of field testers, we would love to have members of the StartEngine community check out the new and improved Tempest App as beta testers. If you’re interested in this opportunity, please complete this form.

The product update includes a host of new features and weather parameters, including:

  • Air Quality Index (AQI) ranges from 0 to 500. As the AQI value increases, the higher the level of outdoor air pollution and the greater the health concern. Use Tempest’s AQI ranking to inform your daily planning and avoid dangerous air pollution during periods of hazardous air quality.

  • Fire Weather Index, based specifically on conditions at your location. This is computed from past index values, recent rain, relative humidity, surface wind, and temperature from your Tempest. Today’s unpredictable and explosive fire seasons elevate the need for better fire weather information across broad regions.

  • Evapotranspiration (ET) is a huge addition, made at the request of our growing customer base of gardeners.  ET is water loss from soil and plants that occurs from the processes of evaporation and transpiration. ET is calculated using wind, solar radiation, temperature, and humidity from the Tempests sensors. Values can be used to optimize sprinkler watering cycles to keep plants healthy and save water. 

  • Wet Bulb Globe Temperature (WBGT) uses temperature, humidity, pressure, solar radiation, and wind speed to indicate estimated heat stress levels for humans and animals in direct sunlight. Monitoring WBGT can help prevent heat-related illness and injury for anyone spending time outdoors.

The update will also include a new color scheme, and three of our most requested features -  an iOS watch app, widgets for your home screen, and themes for light and dark mode. Here’s a sneak peek:

The image above contains images of our beta app update, which is currently not available for general use.

“Among the many exciting additions coming to the Tempest App, we have intelligent features slated for our Alexa integration as well as significant improvements to our API offerings to help consumers and business users alike,” explained Corrine Butcher, Director of Software Development. 

Stay tuned for more news on StartEngine soon!  We have some interesting partnerships in the works and we can’t wait to share details. Needless to say, it’s an exciting time to be part of the WeatherFlow-Tempest story!

Exclusive Tempest Holiday Discount

6 months ago

As the holidays approach, we are extending a special offer to our investor community. Use the discount code FRIENDS&FAM15 to get 15% off a Tempest Weather System and free delivery by December 25, 2021. Be sure to order by December 21 to ensure your order arrives on time!  This offer is only available within the U.S. If you are an investor outside of the U.S. and are interested in purchasing a Tempest, please let us know HERE.

Many of you have asked about product discounts associated with your investment, and we are working with StartEngine to provide you with private links soon.  In the interim, we are celebrating our campaign success by offering this one-time program to anyone in the StartEngine community!  

We designed Tempest with best-of-breed sensors, no moving parts, and an extremely simple set-up. It requires near-zero maintenance and works with a growing list of third-party applications. But don’t take our word for it! Here’s what other people are saying about the Tempest:

  • In the Wall Street Journal’s round-up of high-tech garden tools, the reviewer states, “The (Tempest) device will provide a forecast via its companion app that beats the local news for accuracy.”

  • The Kiteboarder magazine reviewer said, “The Tempest is probably the most cost-effective and maintenance-free way to get a steady source of local (weather) information.”

  • Gizmodo said of Tempest, “This weather station just sits still like some strange lamppost, listens to the world, and gathers energy from the sun.”

  • The Tempest Weather System was recently called the “best weather tracker” in Popular Mechanics 2021 Gifts for Gardeners


Happy holidays from all of us at WeatherFlow-Tempest!

P.S. Per our last update, we strongly encourage anyone interested in our campaign to join the waitlist to ensure you can invest should we decide to extend our offering max or if space becomes available in our current offering.
