Add a permanent NowCast spot to our database:
As the name implies, a "NowCast" is not a weather station. Rather, WeatherFlow computer modellers and programmers have developed a complex algorithm that ingests real-time observations from nearby locations as well as the latest computer model data to produce a real-time interpolated wind field, creating a real-time interpolated wind speed for anywhere in the world. As for the forecast data for a NowCast spot, it is simply generated by model output at the specific coordinates of the location.
To request that we add a NowCast spot to the database, simply click here and send us the following information:
