We’re delighted to announce that the official AccuWeather Chainlink node is live! Smart contract developers can now call our Chainlink node to obtain a wide range of world-class weather data, starting with current weather by geolocation, including current temperature, maximum temperature, minimum temperature, and precipitation. This premier AccuWeather data can then be used within blockchain applications powered by smart contracts to create new products and markets like weather prediction and hedging markets and dynamic NFT art and games that change based on current weather conditions in localized regions.

We selected Chainlink to bridge our weather data onto blockchains because it’s the most time-tested and widely adopted oracle network for data providers and smart contract developers. It was also a very seamless setup process that involved little integration work on our end.
Through our Chainlink node, we can now broadcast data across leading blockchains and cryptographically sign it so users know definitively that it originated from AccuWeather, the world’s most accurate weather source. By using Chainlink as a universal gateway to blockchains, we have been able to extend the reach of our data into emerging markets, as well as support the next generation of weather-related applications. For more information about why we chose Chainlink, refer to our previous announcement.
