We grew tired of unreliable forecasts that weren't even relevant to where we were standing, so we set out to create a forecast that we could use for ourselves.
We wanted to know for sure if it was going to rain at the stadiums for our fantasy sports teams. Or when the surprise summer rain shower is going to end, so we can walk out of the grocery store with our chicken wings and beer, umbrellaless.
We solved this with hyperlocal forecasts (down to your exact street address using GPS instead of a useless city-level view that you see on TV) and tossed out the idea of a 'percent chance of rain' and just tell you how MUCH it's going to rain/snow (what we call Raindex). Pleasant bird bath drizzle or a day-ruining torrential downpour? Big difference!
What's with the name "Weather Girl"? Well, we had a totally different idea originally, then when our code actually worked, we just went with the actual forecasting thing. We still may do something with the 'girl' idea, but for now, isn't she just lovely to look at?
