Meteorological Expertise To Stay Ahead Of The Weather
Plan And Operate Your Sports, Events and Municipalities With Confidence
Our dedicated sports and safety meteorology team works alongside your team from the early days of planning through to the final post-event review. Our teams go beyond just outlooks and forecasts – many of our team members participate in planning and tabletop exercises to truly prepare everyone on your team for what happens if the weather changes. When the severe weather comes, we are there with you, providing real-time updates and guidance to help you make the right weather-related decisions.
Be Alerted When Weather Changes
We provide you the clear, concise data with actionable insights you need to keep your community safe. With our solutions, you can view real-time weather information for your location, including accurate forecasts, precision lightning, wet bulb globe forecasts, storm corridor information, and so much more. We know you have many areas of your community to monitor at any given time; that’s why we offer our real-time weather alerts for more than 50 different weather warnings. That ensures you can make decisions quickly, no matter where you are when weather strikes.
Avoid The Heat
Heat stress is a very real, very common threat to athletes — and a significant safety issue for trainers, coaches, and managers. The best way to understand the impact of hot weather on your athletes or staff is to have access to a Wet Bulb Globe Temperature. It is a more comprehensive and reliable measure of the impact on the human body than the heat index or “feels-like” factor. We provide Wet Bulb Globe Temperature forecasts and data to ensure that you have the most comprehensive, accurate account of the heat’s impact on your operations.
