What makes Finger Lakes Weather different than the TV or National Weather Service?

First, Finger Lakes Weather is all about the Finger Lakes and nothing else. No other provider has this sole focus, and TV stations are heavily biased toward their home city. Finger Lakes Weather fills the void left by others and is an expert on the local microclimates and variations that outsiders misunderstand and misinterpret.

Second are the three core values of Finger Lakes Weather: Honesty, Accuracy, and Accessibility. The entire purpose and mission of Finger Lakes Weather can be wrapped up in these three values.

Where do the forecasts and data that populate this app come from?

All forecasts are original predictions made by meteorologist Drew Montreuil. Radar, weather alerts, and current conditions are sourced from the National Weather Service.

What do the three core values of FLX Weather mean?

Honesty means being clear and transparent with my expectations of the weather. I will never hype-up or purposefully downplay a weather event. No Hype. No Drama. Never.

Accuracy means always striving to make the best forecast possible and learning from every prediction that is made. Meteorology is a science, and forecasting is the Scientific Method in action.

Accessibility means getting everyone the information they need to stay safe in a timely manner. That is why this app, and all the features of Finger Lakes Weather, are free for public use. Questions on how to apply the forecast to your specific situation are welcome and encouraged.

How is Finger Lakes Weather funded?

Finger Lakes Weather relies on the generosity of its users to donate. This is the single biggest source of funding.
