Keep an eye out for bad weather
4th July, 2014
Predicting what the British weather is going to do from one day to the next can often feel like an impossible task, with everyday decisions like ‘do I need an umbrella?’ or ‘can I get away with not taking a jacket?’ seeming like life changing choices. Like you, we permanently have one eye on the weather forecasts to ensure we are always prepared for any surprises Mother Nature may have in store.
As a business that provides its services across the country it is vital that we can identify subtle differences in the weather forecast from one postcode to the next. While a client in one area may be at risk of suffering from ice, just a few miles down the road another client may be absolutely fine. Knowing this information helps us to provide an efficient and effective service.
To achieve this it is important that we are always working with the most accurate information, and that is why we work closely with the Met Office and Weatherquest. The Met Office has been at the forefront of global weather and climate science for 150 years; while Weatherquest are relied upon by a wide range of industry sectors; from agriculture and energy to broadcast and sport.
We are fortunate that all of the staff based at our operations hub are highly skilled when it comes to interpreting and cross-checking the data we receive. This helps us to arrive at an informed decision about whether our clients' businesses are at risk of ice.
Our clients value the service we provide as they know we are continually keeping an eye on the skies, which allows them to concentrate on the day to day running of their business. If you would like to speak to us about putting a plan in place for your business, please do get in touch!
