Hello, WeatherFlow community! We hope this message finds you happy and healthy. We are very excited to have hit the 2 million mark with funds raised for the Tempest. Thanks, everyone for your resounding support!
Though not proceeding as quickly as we hoped, we’re steadily building inventory in our Daytona production facility as we put each Tempest and Hub device through our rigorous QA and calibration process. This initially proved to be a bit of a challenge, as nearly all our employees are working from home, but we quickly adapted our production process to allow us to keep moving forward while maintaining the health and safety of our team.
The shipping timeline for all orders will be delayed as follows:
- Tempest Complete Systems to North America will begin the first week of May, starting with the US and Canada thereafter. Tempest Complete Systems bound for all other countries will begin shipping mid-summer 2020 due to logistical constraints and ongoing certification processes.
- Pro Hub systems, including the Tempest Remote System and Storm & Fire Ready Kit, will likely be delayed until late summer due to production limitations.
Shipping address surveys will be emailed to backers prior to shipping.
As a side note, for several weeks our manufacturing partner in Shenzhen has been working with local factories in China to produce and distribute protective face masks, infrared thermometers, and other personal protective equipment to organizations around the world. WeatherFlow and its employees are also doing what we can to help raise funds and facilitate distribution. So far we’ve helped get more than 14,000 masks to front-line healthcare workers and first responders in our local communities.
We are a tight-knit group and have been adjusting to the new normal of working from home, with regular company-wide video conference calls. Every single WeatherFlow team member is working tirelessly to ensure that we continue moving forward, and we are beyond grateful for the supportive community that has rallied around us. As always, we are here if you need anything.
