Probabilistic weather forecast API
A smarter way to calculate risk.
Minimize disruptions to your business by knowing the uncertainties in your weather forecast. Spire Weather’s Probabilistic Forecast can quantify the risk of an event happening. By providing probabilities of different surface temperature and precipitation thresholds (such as the probability of freezing temperatures or the probability of over 25 mm of rain), you can make data-driven decisions to optimize asset utilization and operational efficiency.
Empowering decision makers to:
- Quantify the weather-related risks
- Analyze action costs vs. weather risks accurately
- Reduce your business risks
- Minimise financial losses due to weather
- Ensure safe, cost-optimised operations & downtime
Point Optimized Forecast API
A hyper-accurate, hyper-specific weather forecast just for your location.
Whether you’re a solar farm owner estimating energy production, a wind farm manager planning downtime or a port manager scheduling vessel traffic, Spire’s solution will create a hyper-local, highly reliable weather forecast just for your location.
- Hyper-localized weather forecast: Spire Weather uses local sensors, Spire’s satellite weather observations, and other sources to learn the weather patterns in a specific area and is combined with machine learning techniques to create a tailored and accurate forecast for the exact site.

What our customers say
“We’re a specialist company that does remote sensing, so we know the value that satellite technology brings to the table. This is why we’re so happy Spire provides such data points using satellite technology as it covers the entire world without any gaps. Before, the level of accuracy was only 75% but now with Spire’s integration, it’s gone up to 95%.”
Co-founder – Mantle Labs
“Rocket launches are extensively pre-planned for a specific outcome, where the launch window is calculated based on the location of the destination on its orbit. Weather events have a direct impact on the actual mission itself, therefore are monitored frequently within the site region. We expect that having access to the Spire Point Optimized Weather forecasts will increase our chances of performing a safe launch, leading to a successful mission, even in the most remote locations.”
CEO – Southern Launch
“Weather routing has the potential to drive greater efficiency and emissions reduction as open-ocean conditions greatly impact performance. Partnering with Spire Weather puts genuinely market leading data into the hands of more users allowing them to enhance vessel performance.”
CEO – Zeronorth
