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.

Crazy Spring(?) Winter(?) Weather is Upon Us!

by Jamie Robinson        February 28, 2012  |  7:33 pm  |  Category: Latest News

The weather in the central U.S. has turned crazy! There are winter storm warnings in the northern tier of states, there are wind advisories on the map and then there's severe weather in Nebraska and Kansas. This map shows just how crazy it's getting. In this view, there's hardly a spot that isn't either currently affected or will be soon.

The winter weather is expected to continue across the Great Lakes and up into New England Wednesday afternoon through Thursday morning. Parts of Wisconsin could see 8-12 inches, New York state could see 3-6 inches and up around Concord, New Hampshire is likely to see nearly a foot of snow.

The severe weather is expected to march through Missouri, Illinois and Kentucky through the overnight hours tonight and up through the Ohio Valley on Wednesday. This will push eventually into the mid-Atlantic region bringing a chance for severe weather into the nation's capital.
