snow-plowingTime is money ! Why waste your time and spend money on overtime by second guessing the weather yourself ? We have years of experience in forecasting for highway departments throughout the Northeast covering lake effect belts and mountainous terrain ! Whether you are a small highway departments with just a few trucks or an entire state highway department, we can custom-tailor forecasts to help you cut down on costs and headaches ! Here is how the service works…

We fax you an exclusive STORM ALERT forecast 18-36 hours in advance of any snow (1″ or greater) or icing situation, then send you updates every 4-8 hours until the storm is over. Because each STORM ALERT is pinpointed specifically for your immediate area, taking into consideration local effects such as proximity to the ocean, mountains etc; most forecasts are more accurate than anything else available. Accurate and timely forecasts save you time and money!

School Departments

schoolbusHow many times have you woken up at 5 o’clock on a cold winters morning to check the weather? If you are like other Superintendents or Transportation Directors, you do this many times each winter, but even getting up early, you still may be unsure of exactly what’s going on. This is where we can help! For more than fifteen years we’ve been providing our exclusive STORM ALERT service to more than 70 school districts across Northern New England !

Here is how our Storm Alert service works:
When a storm threatens, one of our meteorologists will call you by 5:15 the morning of the storm with the latest current weather information and a pin-point forecast prepared specifically for your school district.

Additionally; we send e-mail notifications with a “heads-up” in advance of ALL winter-weather events. That way, you can have the “inside edge” with regard to all winter weather – whether it be a large storm or just some nuisance snow showers!

Keep in mind, our forecasts are unlike most forecasts you receive over the radio or television – which cover a much larger geographical area. We have many athletic directors contacting us concerned about weather and driving conditions for sports trips. And yes – you may call in the off season for weather advice as well !
