PHOENIX (PRWEB) December 01, 2021
WeatheRate, an independent weather research company, today announced that 21 Telemundo owned stations have received the “Most Accurate” forecasting certification for 2021.
"Telemundo stations continue to dominate our Spanish-language weather forecast accuracy research. Clearly, they understand that forecast accuracy is of utmost importance to viewers, and have made this priority number one," said Bruce Fixman, President, WeatheRate.
“Our Telemundo stations are a trusted source of weather information for communities in the U.S. and in Puerto Rico. We have invested significantly with resources and time to boost our local weather operations in each market. Our Meteorologists and Weather Anchors have the scientific trainings they need to help inform our communities about the impacts of climate on their communities. Our state of the art weather radars, coupled with our mobile apps, which provide the only Spanish-language weather alerts in the country – are helping to keep our audiences informed, when they need it and while on-the-go,” added Ozzie Martinez, Senior Vice President, News, Digital and Standards for the Telemundo Station Group.
Since the Telemundo owned stations joined the NBCUniversal Local division eight years ago, the local Telemundo station weather teams have improved the way that weather conditions are presented to Spanish-language audiences across multiple platforms. The stations recently unveiled new mobile apps that make it easier for users to receive their hyper local weather updates. The Telemundo station apps, which are powered by NBCUniversal Local’s largest privately owned network of fixed and mobile weather radars in the country, allow users to watch their local newscasts and watch updated weather forecasts on-demand. The Telemundo station apps also deliver users real-time weather updates in Spanish – helping to fill a gap in the current marketplace.

Using a business model similar to J.D. Power and Associates, WeatheRate conducts independent research at its own expense. Its team of meteorologists spends many hours reviewing forecasts and observed conditions to determine who’s most accurate in each television market.
