The name AccuWeather was not chosen lightly. As we developed the capability to produce the most accurate weather forecasts, we also developed a brand where the very name – AccuWeather – communicates our most important product: accurate weather. As a company, we work hard each day to maintain our reputation as the world’s best and most accurate source of weather information. It is a stance we defend 24/7.
For 50 years, the AccuWeather story has been one of great scientific application, development, creativity, flexibility and ingenuity in providing valuable and highly accurate weather forecasts, warnings and information to businesses and audiences worldwide.
Our Founder and President Dr. Joel N. Myers has been named by Entrepreneur Magazine as one of the 528 greatest entrepreneurs in American history. In fact, Dr. Myers is one of only a small group of living members of that list, joining the likes of Bill Gates, Ted Turner, and Steven Spielberg.
AccuWeather also holds more than 40 weather-related patents…giving the company a distinct advantage over other weather sources in weather technology and in pinpoint forecasting.
Today, over 800 million people worldwide rely on us for accurate weather information.
It is a story we are proud to share.
