TWC Reups with Weather Predict


The Weather Channel will use Weather Predict Inc.’s proprietary tropical-cyclone-prediction products for a second year under a deal announced Tuesday.

Under terms of the agreement, Weather Predict will continue to provide TWC with tropical-storm and hurricane forecasts created with patented forecast technology known as the “Multi-Model Super-Ensemble,” which was developed at Florida State University.

“Weather Predict provides probability distributions for both track and intensity forecasts for tropical systems,” Weather Predict head of tropical prediction Eric Williford said in a prepared statement. “Our tropical-product suite will include forecasts for all tropical basins worldwide by the end of 2004.”
