About Iowa Storm Center
Iowa Storm Center stems back to the beginning during 2012. Ben Maurer started the weather page to keep Iowan’s ahead of the next storm and grow his passion for meteorology. He saw a gap in reliable weather forecasting and his goal was to fill that gap. In November of 2017, Ben launched Updraft Weather Solutions, a weather service that would provide custom weather forecasts for businesses and farmers that wanted an accurate weather forecast that went beyond a smart phone app. Over time, Iowa Storm Center grew following the launch of Updraft Weather Solutions that would merge with Iowa Storm Center in 2022 to offer both forecasting and consulting under one brand.
For more than 10 years, Iowa Storm Center has prided themselves in being a reliable source. We are Iowa’s only independent weather service, specializing in long range forecasts and weather consulting to assist your business in decision support. We include the human element with technology to produce the most reliable forecast that is suitable for business decisions.
