From 3100004B3M 3100004B3M on March 14th, 2019
IBM and The Weather Company have unveiled a powerful new global weather forecasting system that will provide the most accurate local weather forecasts ever seen worldwide. The new IBM Global High-Resolution Atmospheric Forecasting System (or GRAF) will be the first hourly-updating commercial weather system that is able to predict something as small as thunderstorms globally. Compared to existing models, it will provide a nearly 200% improvement in forecasting resolution for much of the globe, bringing the rest of the world up to the standard already seen in the United States, Japan and a handful of other countries primarily in Western Europe.
