Pelmorex Corp. has announced a majority investment in Weather Source, a U.S. based global provider of analytics-grade weather and climate data. Its patent-pending technology, delivers hyper-local weather data for any LAT/LONG point and for many geographic areas such as ZIP or postal codes, census blocks or tracks, metropolitan statistical areas, or designated market areas. Weather Source will add to Pelmorex Corp’s portfolio of brands, including The Weather Network, MétéoMédia, EITiempo.es, OTempo.pt and Clima, as the company broadens its data solutions business.

Pelmorex says its leadership positions in Canada and Spain and expansive user base, combined with the integration of Weather Source’s data, technical expertise, product vision and explosive growth in the U.S. market, will enable both companies to provide specialized solutions on a larger scale.
