"Forget The 7-Day Forecast, WeatherPlanner Will Give You Year-Ahead Weather Predictions" TechCrunch, October 29, 2015 - Fitz Tipper

Are you sick of not knowing what the weather will be like at your cousin’s best friend’s sister’s birthday party that is in six months? Well, now you can know exactly what the weather will be like that day … sort of.

Recently featured in the TechCrunch Radio Pitch-Off, WeatherPlanner is a year-ahead weather service that will tell you what the weather will be like on any specific day for the next year.

One of the newest ways of doing that is through a service called WeatherPlanner

Here’s how it works: The service analyzes 100 years of weather history to make a general prediction about the estimated weather conditions for any date requested, plus 10 days before and after that date. The idea is that users can try to plan a major event in the future without worrying about it being rained out. The company said that this technology is already being used for logistical planning by companies like McDonald’s and Walmart, and they have packaged this same data in a consumer-friendly interface.

"A Weather Outlook For Your Next Trip" Global Golf Post, August 10, 2015 - John Steinbreder

It was Bob Dylan who sang, "You don't need a weatherman to know which way the wind blows." But we as golfers can always use a little help when it comes to discerning what the conditions will be when we take our games on the road and how we might prepare - and pack for - the treks we take with our clubs in tow.

One of the newest ways of doing that is through a service called WeatherPlanner

Through a proprietary process that utilizes alogithms, climatological factors and data going back more than 100 years, WeatherPlanner is designed to provide free, customized weather outlooks for up to a year in advance,

For when the 10-day weather forecast just isn’t enough, try WeatherPlanner.

Jay Ciccarone’s company uses historical data, algorithms and climatological factors to give you forecasts into the future. It doesn’t make a consumer-facing app. Instead, it puts its technology on sites like AAA Mid-Atlantic and Schuylkill Valley Sports and apps like 24me. WeatherPlanner shares the revenue it generates on those sites.

The company was recently featured in the Philadelphia Inquirer and the New York Times.

"In the Forecast: Weather disappointments inspired a prediction app of his own" The Philadelphia Inquirer, July 19, 2015 - Diane Mastrull

How many times have you cursed the weather as it spoiled a vacation, wedding, or freshly waxed car? Top among Jay Ciccarone's weather disappointments was a soggy golf trip to California's legendary Pebble Beach with his father 21 years ago.

"I booked the trip and did not know January was the rainy season in Monterey," he said. "Had I known this prior, I would have continued with our plans, although I would have been better prepared with sturdier umbrellas, waterproof rain gear."

Since then, Ciccarone, of Wayne, has started a few businesses (golf club manufacturing, novelty gifts, wine video) and has worked at others - including this one, as a director of national advertising and business development from 2005 to 2010 for what now is Philadelphia Media Network.

But that dampened West Coast outing so many years ago is what motivates his latest entrepreneurial undertaking: WeatherPlanner.
