Announcing Amazon Forecast Weather Index – automatically include local weather to increase your forecasting model accuracy

We’re excited to announce the Amazon Forecast Weather Index, which can increase your forecasting accuracy, by automatically including the latest local weather information to your demand forecasts with one click and at no extra cost. Weather conditions influence consumer demand patterns, product merchandizing decisions, staffing requirements and energy consumption needs; however, acquiring, cleaning, and effectively using live weather information for demand forecasting is challenging and requires ongoing maintenance. With this launch, you can now include 14-day weather forecasts for US and Europe locations with one click to your demand forecasts.
