Our new solution 'Significant Weather Update' gives you up to 72 hours advance warning of impending significant weather - along with an analysis of the impact it may have on your operations.
You will get a quick-glance summary, delivered by email as a PDF. It contains a weather report, starting with a general weather overview, followed by a more detailed explanation. The report also includes a National Severe Weather Warnings map, and concludes with an analysis of the specific weather impacts that may disrupt your operations.
The report is issued when the weather has potential to cause significant disruption to your operations, and gives you one, consistent message to share with staff across all areas of your business. You will receive daily updates, starting three days in advance. On the day of the event, you will receive three, six-hourly updates, giving you the latest picture as it develops.
