How to get Snowfall Forecast Alerts in Weather Defender Commercial Edition

by Rory Groves        February 23, 2015  |  2:39 pm  |  Category: Latest News | Tips & Tricks

Weather Defender Commercial Edition is a powerful piece of software, and one that can benefit many industries which are reliant on snowfall forecasting. For example, snow plowing companies will find this technology extremely useful, and ski resorts all over the world are greatly reliant on snowfall for their skiing conditions and ultimately trade and income.

This is thus a critical piece of information for many companies, and it is fortunate that Weather Defender Commercial Edition makes accessing the latest snowfall forecast alerts extremely easy and user-friendly.

Accessing snowfall forecast alerts is as simple as the following process. Firstly, access the Perimeter tool and draw a circle around the area which requires monitoring.  At this point a settings panel will appear on the screen. Within this panel, locate the Snowfall Forecast options by simply scrolling down to the Winter Weather option.

Weather Defender Commercial Edition has a nifty feature which enables you to customize the amount of snowfall which you wish to be alerted about, so at this stage you should enter the appropriate amount of snowfall.  There are a raft of other customizable settings as well, so these should be all completed. Among the options at this stage is the ability to name a particular perimeter, and a raft of options regarding how you may particularly wish to be alerted.  Once you have completed all of the options in the window, select OK, and the settings you have specified will be updated automatically. The Weather Defender Commercial Edition will then update your map with appropriate snowfall forecast maps in real-time, ensuring that they are always up to date

Weather Defender Commercial Edition is a robust, intuitive piece of software designed to provide public agencies and organizations with state of the art weather information at an affordable price.

Extreme Cold Blasts the Midwest, SWIFT Weather HQ

by Rory Groves        January 6, 2014  |  12:07 pm  |  Category: Company | Latest News

Extreme cold polar temps descended south over the weekend to bring subzero temperatures and dangerously cold windchills across the Midwest including North and South Dakota, Wisconsin, Iowa, Illinois, Indiana, and of course Minnesota -- home base to the SWIFT Weather operations.

We Minnesotans are used to cold weather, but this is one for the recordbooks. As a whole, this winter has been the coldest in decades with several weeks of subzero temperatures.

We woke this morning with temperatures at -18 degrees Farhenheit near Minneapolis and Wind Chill values around -45 degrees. That number is to expected to drop further overnight to -21 degrees F and almost -50 Wind Chill. And Minneapolis isn't the coldest part of the state by a long shot. The further north you go, the colder it gets.

 

Stay warm and plan ahead if you need to travel anywhere. Stock up on winter gear -- after Christmas is a good time to get deep discounts on winter apparel.

 

Best Regards,

Most of the Country Feels Like Fall (Finally!)

by Jamie Robinson        November 4, 2011  |  12:35 pm  |  Category: Latest News

After a sweltering summer for many, much of the country finally feels like fall. Temperatures in the majority of the nation aren't getting out of the 60s.

In addition, with the wind factored in, many are dealing with very cool wind chills.

The upcoming week shows promise for some very interesting weather. There is currently a low pressure system coming into the Northweat part of the U.S. that will begin to affect much of the western and central U.S. over the weekend and into the middle of next week.

As you can see, winter weather advisories are already out for parts of the Rockies. As the system moves into the plains and midwest, there will be a chance for heavy rain and even some thunderstorms in the southern half of the region. The northern half looks to see a chance for snow (Minnesota, Iowa, Nebraska and Wisconsin) as the system moves through Tuesday into Wednesday.

As always, stay on top of the weather with Weather Defender. It can handle all your weather needs.
