A lot of the things we do and the decisions we make on a daily basis can be affected by the weather. For businesses, understanding weather patterns and how they affect things like attendance, foot traffic, viewership and sales, can have a definite impact on the bottom line. Weather Source is a service that provides extensive weather data and other solutions aimed at helping businesses improve business performance. Weather Source also provides the Weather Source API that allows this data to be integrated with other applications where needed.
