Custom numerical weather prediction from your browser
Cloudrun is the first and only numerical weather prediction SaaS platform in the world. Because Cloudrun is web-based, you can run custom high resolution weather forecasts from anywhere. No supercomputer access, or upfront hardware investment required. What you get are high-quality, raw meteorological gridded data in NetCDF and GRIB formats.
No expertise required
With our Forecast Wizard, you simply choose a region and timeframe that you are interested in. Our system takes care of everything else under the hood and creates an optimal model configuration for your region and timeframe. You can run weather forecasts immediately, or schedule them for later. No meteorology or weather modeling experience is necessary.
Pay only for what you use
Forecasts start at $49 per forecast day, pro-rated to the hour. No membership fees or minimums. Just run the forecasts that you need. See our pricing page for more information.
