VISION, PARTNERSHIP, EXPERTISE
Innovation isn’t just a part of our business. It is our business.
REVOLUTIONIZING WEATHER FORECASTING TO SOLVE TODAY’S BIGGEST PROBLEMS
When we first imagined new ways to approach weather forecasting, we started with a lot of “what ifs?” and, thanks to the brightest minds in the business, quickly moved to “why not?” Climavision’s team of talented engineers, data scientists, meteorologists, and climate enthusiasts built on the successes of their predecessors and developed revolutionary new approaches that will propel weather forecasting into the future. We went to the root of the problem – gaps in observations – and took on the challenge ourselves. We’ve married new observations with our blend of advanced science, data, and technology to make the greatest leaps in forecast accuracy in over 50 years.
WHO WE ARE
Experts Reimagining The Weather Industry
We lived the problem, we worked the problem, and now we’ve solved the problem. We’ve gathered expertise, passion, and the absolute best minds – everything needed to fundamentally change climate technology.
UNRIVALED INDUSTRY EXPERIENCE
We have assembled the industry’s most seasoned team of scientists, meteorologists, cutting edge technologists, and climate enthusiasts with decades of experience. We’re ready to shake up the industry.
FOCUSED PROBLEM SOLVERS
Our Climavision team has an unwavering commitment to advancing weather prediction in the fight against climate-based risk by significantly changing the industry’s approach to data capture and delivery.
HOW WE DO IT
Going to extremes
Weather prediction relies on a single core element – observation. Our dedicated weather radar network provides more coverage and delivers significantly more data than ever available. Our access to proprietary GPS-RO data and other high-value observation data sets delivers highly valuable information in gap areas across the globe, especially over the ocean. This ability expands our visibility and understanding of the atmosphere, far beyond sparsely launched weather balloons. Filling hundreds of gaps in coverage is akin to filling in the missing pieces of a puzzle – finally, we can survey extreme weather phenomena, such as hurricanes, faster and at higher resolution, before they hit close to home.
Observations are just the beginning. We’re marrying observations with cutting edge technology. Armed with new data points, our cloud-based storage and high-powered computing (HPC) delivers critical nowcasts plus short-, mid-, and long-range forecasts. Our visualizations and interactive maps give greater visibility into the potential impacts of severe weather events with greater precision and longer lead times than previously available.

National Weather Service gains access to Climavision’s supplemental radar network
LOUISVILLE, KY (September 21, 2023) – NOAA’s National Weather Service (NWS) has a new set of “eyes” on severe weather, where and when they need to see the most. Since early last year, Climavision has been cooperating with NOAA’s National Severe Storms Laboratory (NSSL). Now, for the first time, the National Weather Service has entered into a short-term arrangement to access Climavision’s supplementary radar data through the National Mesonet Program (NMP). The NWS will use this opportunity to enhance research and development while further informing any decision by the agency to enter into a longer-term contracting/data-buy commitment.
Climavision brings enhanced protection to the South’s “Tornado Alley”
LOUISVILLE, KY and MOULTON, AL – Climate tech pioneer Climavision continues to expand its network of weather radars across the Southeast, with a new installation in Lawrence County, Alabama set to go online this month. The new radar in Moulton, approximately 50 miles southwest of Huntsville, fills a critical low-level coverage gap in and around the Appalachian Plateau, and adds to the company’s advanced supplemental radar network across the United States.
New Climavision radar watching over DFW Metroplex
LOUISVILLE, KY and RENO, TX – One of the nation’s largest population centers now has enhanced protection from severe weather thanks to climate tech pioneer Climavision. The new X-Band radar installation in Reno, approximately 40 miles northwest of Dallas-Fort Worth, fills a critical gap in radar coverage in and around the Metroplex and adds to the company's advanced supplemental radar network across Texas and the United States.

Your weather app may be missing critical details. A group of emergency managers is trying to fix that.
companies such as Climavision offer smaller radar systems that can be placed on existing infrastructure. In October, Climavision plans to install an X-band radar system on a water tower in Wendell, a small city in Grant County, as part of a pilot project. It'll be the first X-band system in the state, Goode said.
Millersville University Celebrates Partnership with Climavision
Students studying meteorology at Millersville University will soon have access to data from a new weather radar system, thanks to Climavision. In June, Millersville University announced that a weather radar system was installed on campus through a partnership with Climavision, a climate-tech company. On August 29, the University will celebrate this important partnership with a ribbon-cutting ceremony at Caputo Hall.
Gap-filling weather radar installation nearing completion in Lamar County
On Monday, Lamar County announced that its partner, Climavision, a climate-tech data pioneer, has nearly completed installing a new weather radar system in Reno, which will supplement weather coverage in between neighboring NEXRAD S-Band radars.
