An accurate picture of both historical and upcoming weather, in hourly increments, is a built-in feature of WxOutside
You can retrieve long-range forecasts for as many locations as you want.
These forecasts include agricultural factors, allowing for predictions and recommendations for irrigation and fertilisation activities.
The forecasts include day summaries of farming-specific weather conditions for up to 7 days in advance. These are summarised in plain English.
Along with the summary for each day, you can get details on the temperature, precipitation, wind, humidity, cloud cover, visibility, dew point and more.
In addition to the standard weather conditions, WxOutside also includes details on growing degree days, evapotranspiration, thermal heat indexes, heat load indexes, accumulated heat load indexes, and moisture loss.
The forecast is updated every 3 hours, and includes conditions on an hourly interval. This is accurate to the nearest kilometer in some areas, or 4 kilometers for the rest of the world.
If you need to see what's happened previously, you can access historical weather data from as far back as 2006.
Each physical sensor will record the conditions it can detect - a combination of wind, rain, humidity, temperature, and soil conditions. By comparing these recordings with the forecast conditions, estimates and alerts can be created for conditions you care about and any likely threshold or compliance breaches.
You can ask WxOutside nearly any weather-related question. If you're interested in a particular condition, or a very specific threshold, then you can ask about it in plain English.
You can ask simple questions about weather conditions on a specific day.
You can also ask about conditions across multiple days.
WxOutside also supports complex conditions, and questions involving quantities.
You can also ask about thresholds and specific quantities, as well as for specific times on the day.
Questions can get extremely specific if you need this level of data.
When you've got questions that you want notifications for, WxOutside can send you Tweets, SMS messages and emails, alerting you to extreme weather events and threshold breaches.
If you have a twitter account, tweet a question to @wxadvisory. Something along the lines of "What will the max temperature be this week?", or "How much humidity will there be tomorrow?", and see what happens.
