Australian Weather Forecasts.

Weatherzone’s forecasts are a collaboration of data sourced from the Australian Bureau of Meteorology (BOM) and Weatherzone’s increasingly independent in-house modelling.  Weatherzone’s industry-leading forecasting solution Opticast™ also utilises the data from customer’s weather stations, and our own Australia-wide weather station network, in addition to real-time observations provided by the BOM.

Additional forecasting is provided by international partners such as Metservice NZ, Customweather and the World Meteorological Organisation (WMO)

Long Range Weather Forecasting – 14 day to 12 month forecasts.

These forecasts are produced by Weatherzone’s meteorologists using raw data provided by international weather agencies.

These forecasts are produced using a combination of techniques, some in the public domain and others developed by Weatherzone. The result is a suite of long-range forecasts considered to be the most accurate available for the Australian region.
