Forecast verification experts WeatheRate has certified two additional television stations bringing their total to 51 customers. They now have customers in 60% of the largest 85 television markets.

Forecast verification experts WeatheRate certified WJAX/WFOX Jacksonville and WPBF West Palm Beach as the most accurate in their markets for the period March 1, 2016 through February 28, 2017.

The addition of these two Florida-based television stations brings WeatheRate to six of the state’s seven largest television markets. WeatheRate founder and President, Bruce Fixman, stated, “As we’ve witnessed this year, Florida is especially vulnerable to significant weather events. Our Sunshine State customers understand that the weather is not always sunny, and viewers trust WeatheRate to tell them who’s most accurate in their town.”

The Arizona-based company crowns local meteorologists across the country as the most accurate in their TV markets by comparing forecasts with actual conditions. WeatheRate verifies high and low temperatures, sky cover, precipitation, snow accumulation, wind and fog. Accuracy in forecasting severe weather and timing of precipitation also comes into play.

Using a business model similar to J.D. Power and Associates, WeatheRate conducts independent research at their own expense. At the end of each WeatheRating period, the company offers its seal of approval only to the most accurate station in each television market.
