Comprehensive and Intelligent Weather Data
With Baron Threat Net, you don’t need to be a meteorologist to track weather’s impact on your area of responsibility, including unique road weather conditions and forecasts. With more than 50 data products included, 18 of which are Baron-exclusive, the greatest threats in your area can be quickly and accurately identified. So you can ensure your preparation and response plans are effective.
The Most Accurate Storm Tracking
Baron Storm Vectors do the meteorology for you, automatically identifying high winds, hail and possible tornadoes. These threats are pinpointed on the map with color-coded arrows pointing in the storm’s direction of movement. Click the arrow to automatically track the storm, viewing the storm’s expected path and estimated times of arrival in communities.
Our storm tracks are more accurate than what you’ll find in other weather websites, because they are designed to locate the strongest areas of storms, not just the storm center. We also make use of the latest radar technologies to enhance our storm tracks. All this means threats can be detected earlier, with more accurate placement and community arrival forecasts.
Get Alerts for Important Locations
You can define custom locations important to you on the map, including the location of your campus. Anytime inclement weather or a National Weather Service warning that affects a location is issued, you get an instant alert on the map, through an email, or as a text message on your phone.
Historical Weather Data
An optional addition to your Threat Net account, Baron Historical Weather Data allows you to view archived radar, hail and tornado detection, flooding data and more from the last week, month or year—or even up to 8 years ago. Use this information to conduct severe weather exercises, replaying an event as it unfolded in real-time, or using as part of your request for repairs funding. When you request a free trial to Baron Threat Net, historical data can be included in your trial plan, giving you access to a variety of archived weather data from up to 7 days in the past.
