Climate Data

 Annual weather statics at a glance

Climate data is ideal for agriculture, industry, travel agencies, hotel chains or media houses to provide information about typical weather conditions at points of interest at any time of year.

Weather Information in the Long Run

Weather forecasts have a relatively short range for planning outdoor activities. They usually extend a maximum of two weeks ahead. When information about probable weather further ahead is needed, climate data is used instead of a forecast. Sometimes these can be combined into a "45-day forecast", where the latter part of the forecast is actually climate information dressed up as a realistic looking forecast.

For websites wishing to inform their visitors about likely weather months in advance, Foreca climate data provides an attractive solution. For consumers, information about precipitation and temperature is usually especially interesting for travel planning.

If a business needs to make a decision based on what the weather will be like in two months, that decision should be based on climate data.

Climate data is like monthly forecast
