According to The Australian Financial Review, a US weather analytics start-up that claims it can provide ''hyper-local'' forecasts with minute-by-minute accuracy, is setting its sights on Australian expansion after seeing a surge of downloads during the recent bushfire emergency.
ClimaCell has raised $US80 million since it was founded in 2015.
While Australians have become accustomed to having weather information at the tap of a button on their phones, from websites like the Bureau of Meteorology, ClimaCell claims its Weather Assistant app provides more detailed, up-to-date and useful information.
It presents up to three hours of forecasts with a minute-to-minute view of how the weather conditions are changing, including the air quality, wind conditions, humidity and cloud cover.
