Symbols of travel and technology, and symbols of weather conditions, connected by IBM Watson Advertising


WEATHERfx is a real-time, event-based targeting solution that enables brands to leverage the powerful connection between weather and emotion to deliver messaging that can drive consumer action.

  • **NEW** WEATHERfx + Watson Health: WEATHERfx , now enhanced with Watson Health data, to help you hone in on weather that can exacerbate specific health conditions.
  • **NEW** WEATHERfx Enhanced Product Triggers: WEATHERfx, now combined with leading retail sales data to help you take action when weather conditions are likely to impact demand.

How It Works:

  • Interprets and normalizes weather elements and sales, health, and/or consumer data.
  • Defines condition mixes when weather is most likely to drive behavior.
  • Puts your brand in front of the right people at the right moment.

Decisioning Extends Beyond Weather

  • Because your audience is everywhere, this dynamic targeting can be applied everywhere, on our properties or yours, out-of-home, in-store, and more.

Watson Advertising’s location data and our location-derived audience targeting uses one of the world’s largest continuous streams of first party location data – The Weather Channel – to find and reach relevant audiences. It leverages people’s real-world behaviors over time to shed light on their wants, needs, preferences, consumption habits, and future activities.

Our Location offering goes deeper with data, by telling you:

  • Who You Should Target
  • Who Else You Should Target
  • What You Can Learn From Them
  • When You Should Reach Them
