The Arizona-based company crowns local meteorologists across the country as the most accurate in their TV markets by comparing forecasts with actual conditions.

Using a business model similar to J.D. Power and Associates, WeatheRate conducts independent research at their own expense. At the end of each WeatheRating period, the company offers its seal of approval only to the most accurate station in each television market.
