Always be prepared for the next winter storm

Winter weather is tough to manage. Snow, freezing rain, and black ice present challenges to maintenance crews, especially as temperatures change from one extreme to the next. With Weatherlogics, you can confidently plan ahead for whatever Mother Nature brings your way, saving time, enhancing safety, and improving resiliency.

Weatherlogics has developed a proprietary weather prediction system which provides advanced road-specific weather forecast guidance. Our system shows you all the necessary weather information to plan ahead and make informed decisions to fight the next winter storm. This is not your typical weather forecast.

Can’t I just use my weather app?

Weather apps are designed to provide “public forecasts”. These are general weather forecasts that tell you whether you need to bring an umbrella or dress in layers. Weather apps are not designed to trigger plow operations or show how much deicing chemical to apply. Weatherlogics’ winter maintenance portal is designed to show you how to fight winter weather based on road-specific triggers.

Key Advantages

Utilizing road weather forecasts is proven to save money and improve service. A report by the Ontario Ministry of Transportation notes that some jurisdictions have found a cost-benefit ratio as high as 20:1 when using road weather information. The benefits of this information don't only go to winter maintenance operators, but also to the public. Motorists experience fewer accidents, reduced delays, and less environmental impact. Another study by the Western Transportation Institute found that utilizing road weather forecasts saves 1 to 6% of the total winter maintenance budget. Utilizing road weather information is a win-win for all involved, providing numerous benefits:

  • Save money on winter maintenance.
  • Planning crews is made easier.
  • Improve safety by receiving advanced warning of winter weather.
  • Less environmental impact by reducing unnecessary chemical treatments.
  • Service is improved to ratepayers through faster response times.

Use Cases

Weather data for winter maintenance can be applied in both the public and private sectors. The information can be utilized by provincial, state, and municipal governments and also by private snow removal contractors. Software developers can also incorporate the data into applications that require road-specific weather information
