The world needs better, more accurate, more finely-tuned weather forecasts

This is what the IBM Global High-Resolution Atmospheric Forecasting System (GRAF) delivers as the first hourly-updating weather system that is able to predict something as small as a thunderstorm virtually anywhere on the planet.

Compared to existing models, IBM GRAF will provide a nearly 200% improvement in forecasting resolution for much of the globe. It will provide 3-kilometer resolution that updates hourly, delivering reliable predictions for the day ahead. 

IBM has figured out a way to improve the way we predict the weather.
