The Weather Company uses IBM Power Systems hardware to deliver high-precision local weather forecasts

Access to real-time accurate weather forecasts affects how communities plan for and respond to major weather events like tropical storms, how farmers plan for a drought, and how store owners adjust inventory for a historically cold year. We enjoy consistent, fairly accurate weather forecasts in the U.S., but similarly accurate weather forecasts are not available […]
