Founded in 1998, Weatherzone enjoyed immediate success in broadcast television, supplying to five major Australian networks.
In 2000 Weatherzone launched its public website weatherzone.com.au, which quickly grew to become Australia’s most popular privately-operated weather website. During the 2000’s, Weatherzone diversified into other industry sectors, including agribusiness, energy, insurance, construction, oil and gas, retail, ports and mining.
Weatherzone’s drive to understand each sectors’ true needs and commitment to quality forecast solutions has cemented Weatherzone as the market leader in many of these industries; notably being chosen as the main provider to the Australian Energy Market Operator in 2012 over the Australian Bureau of Meteorology and other providers, due to the accuracy of its OpticastTM model.
Weatherzone has also created an unrivalled weather-related planning tool for the aviation industry, utilised by Australia’s national carrier Qantas, to improve operational planning and reduce costs through improved decision-making based on accurate information. Weatherzone strives to be the leader in the field through cutting edge science, listening to our clients’ true needs and finding solutions for safer and more efficient operations.
DTN, an independent source of insights, analysis and decision-support solutions, acquired WeatherZone in 2019. This acquisition underscores DTN’s commitment to bringing the most accurate, most actionable insights to consumers and customers in weather-sensitive industries throughout the world.
