WxOutside can accurately forecast your soil moisture and soil temperature.

Accurate forecasting 7 days in advance

Using as little as 4 weeks' worth of recorded data, you can have hourly forecasting made for your exact location and accurate to within 0.5 percentage points or ½ degree.

Telemetry accuracy

4 weeks' worth of data is enough, but ongoing telemetry makes it even more accurate.

Machine learning algorithm

WxOutside forecasting learns the difference between heavy rain and showers - and how the soil reacts - and adjusts the forecasts accordingly.

Simulation of 'what-if' scenarios

If you're wondering how irrigation will affect the soil with the upcoming weather, you can simulate how the soil moisture and temperate will react with different amounts of water.

Easy to read

Your questions are answered in plain English, and the graphs highlight the threshold breaches or decision points when they occur.

Responsive forecasts

Forecasts are updated every single hour of the day.

Volitile weather

The weather forecast can change often, and the soil moisture and soil temperature forecasts will adjust instantly.

Precise monitoring

Hourly forecasts show the exact moment that you'll pass the field capacity or refill points

Automatic irrigation detection

WxOutside can automatically detect when you have irrigated and calculate the effective amount of water you've applied.


You can be alerted for any condition or threshold that interests you. You can be notified by SMS, Twitter, email or via the wxoutside.tools website.

Adjustable settings

If the soil conditions change, you can adjust the field capacity, soil type and refill points.

Alerting and Monitoring

WxOutside uses a purpose-built weather forecasting service to spot extreme weather events, and alert you to their impacts.

You can also set up alerts for any condition or threshold you care about.

WxOutside is non-prescriptive

You're still in charge

Freedom of choice

You're free to irrigate at any point - the forecasts will automatically recalculate immediately it's detected.

This is just advice

There are no mandatory actions you must take.

Your actions add to the forecasting system

When you irrigate, the reaction from the soil feeds into the forecasting system for your location - allowing for even better simulations and future forecasting.
