These businesses rely on a professional weather station to keep them abreast of potential issues, and such a station can help your operations as well.

Benefits of a Professional Meteorologist

When you enlist the services of a professional meteorological company, you receive detailed reports from a professional weather station designed to help you make crucial decisions pertaining to your business.

  • By tapping into a forecasting command center, Turnour receives personalized pre-, during and post-game weather forecasts.
  • Professional forecasting information includes hazardssuch as lightning storms.

How does Turnour get his hands on such crucial data? He works with Earth Networks where, as quoted from The Washington Post, chief meteorologist Mark Hoekzema explains, “We’re getting the real-time rain rates, so we’re able to, with the dense network [of weather stations] around D.C., see the rain as it approaches and gauge generally if it’s… enough to create a problem…”
