IBM’s The Weather Company takes a closer look at its powerful new forecasting tool IBM GRAF, which is set to begin operating this month. The hourly-updating Global High-Resolution Atmospheric Forecasting System (IBM GRAF) improves global model resolution by three times, helping to bring the rest of the world’s forecasts up to the standard once limited to a small number of countries.

It helps democratize weather forecasts so people, businesses and governments – anywhere – can make better weather-related decisions.
