Our Evolution


A private company founded in 1998, Weatherzone enjoyed immediate success in broadcasting, supplying weather forecasts to five major Australian networks.


Weatherzone launched its public website ‘weatherzone.com.au’, which quickly grew to become Australia’s most popular, privately owned go-to for daily forecasts. During the 2000s, Weatherzone diversified into other industry sectors including agribusiness, energy, aviation, construction, resources, retail, ports and mining.


Weatherzone became the market leader in many of these industries due to our drive to understand each sector’s individual needs, and our commitment to innovative forecast solutions. In 2012 we were chosen as the primary provider to the Australian Energy Market Operator due to the accuracy of our OpticastTM model.


Weatherzone created an unrivalled weather forecast planning tool for the aviation industry, utilised by Australia’s national carrier. It continues to improve operational planning, ensure safety and reduce costs.


Weatherzone purchased and expanded the WZ Total Lightning Network, which now stands as an industry leader for accurate intra-cloud and cloud-to-ground detection, assisting businesses in mitigating severe weather risk.

Weatherzone released Miningzone, the safety and environmental solution specifically built for the mining sector.


The Aviation Weather app is launched, enabling the critical OPMET data provided in our aviation services to be easily visualized on any device.


DTN, an independent source of insights, analysis and decision-support solutions, acquired Weatherzone. This acquisition underscored DTN’s commitment to bring the most accurate, actionable insights to consumers and customers in weather-sensitive industries throughout the world.


The Weatherzone App won the World Meteorological Organisation’s International Weather Apps Award for ‘Private Sector Information Content: reliability, usefulness, quality and quantity of information.’

An upgrade to the Blast Dispersion Modelling used in Miningzone is actioned and delivered globally.


To now...

Weatherzone Business continues to lead the field as we pioneer and integrate cutting-edge science.

We listen to our client’s needs and take great pride in finding solutions for their business to maintain safety, improve effiecieny and guide critical business decisions.
