Project Skyz

Since 2018 I maintain, an ad-free weathersite. It also has iOS and Android apps.

Skyz is a interactive weather platform that aims to show the forecasted weather in a clear way, and also collect observations from 300+ personal weather stations across the benelux area.

I try to do as much of the datasourcing myself as possible, for example weather forecast data is pulled straight from various weather agencies such as the KMI, KNMI, DWD, NOAA and MeteoFrance in the raw form (usually grib2) which is then processed into a single datastream optimized for accuracy. I use the data from the weather stations to verify the accuracy of forecast data, and to select the best forecast model for a given location.

I maintain the platform as a hobby in my spare time, and I am always looking for ways to improve it. If you have any suggestions or questions, feel free to contact me:
