Real-time Weather Data and How it’s Used to Protect Communities

Earth Networks is a leading provider of real-time weather data services for many areas. Their products help communities stay alerted and aware of approaching and impending severe storms, tornados, hurricanes, and other severe weather occurrences. For more information about their services, check out their website to learn more. In the meantime, the following are just a few of the benefits of real time weather data for safety and how it can be used to protect communities and residents in any area.

Traffic Conditions

Real-time weather data helps to protect communities by helping reduce traffic and accidents. Severe weather and storms can often make for poor driving conditions, which can, in turn, cause traffic delays and accidents. When communities are aware of severe weather conditions and real-time lightning data can predict time frames that might produce heavy rains and thunderstorms, drivers can know when to leave their homes to go to work and can prevent heavy traffic and accidents.

Travel

Travel is also affected by severe weather, especially air travel. For example, lightning is a common hazard to air travel due to the poor visibility during thunderstorms and the inability for ground crews to prep planes for further travel when lightning is present. One way real-time weather data helps is with lightning detection systems that can pinpoint how far the lightning is for the area and cause airports to plan accordingly.

General protection/awareness

In short, real-time weather data can protect communities in many ways, and its overall benefits of predicting and communicating the weather to communities are the best way to keep communities safe during times of severe weather. Real-time weather data provides an accurate look at the weather and ways in which it can change quickly, and is able to notify the community in ample time.
