Boston-based weather technology company ClimaCell on Wednesday announced a collaboration with Google Cloud to improve weather forecasting in India by providing high-resolution forecast models free of charge for up to 48 hours ahead.

ClimaCell Bespoke Atmospheric Model (CBAM) will be available as ‘ClimaCell-CBAM India Weather Forecasts’ to the general public, including developers, scientists and business users, the company said in a statement.


Google Cloud will contribute cloud resources to support the massive computational effort associated with running such a high performance model.

“For the first time, a private company is offering a full-blown operational numerical weather prediction model for an entire country, working continuously and providing high-resolution forecasts for up to 48 hours ahead,” said Shimon Elkabetz, CEO and Co-Founder of ClimaCell.

However, with CBAM, ClimaCell and Google Cloud will bring high resolution and refresh time to levels exceeding mesoscale models in developed countries, beginning in India.
