Comprehensive Road Weather Data
Our meteorologist team has collective decades of experience in road weather forecasting. With Baron Threat Net, you don’t need to be a forecaster to monitor roadways in your area of responsibility. Slippery, icy roads, flooded roads, or those impacted by severe weather are accurately depicted on the map. Exclusive data is generated by patented algorithms for enhanced accuracy, quality-controlled by our team of forecasters. There’s even exclusive road conditions forecast data, so you can see how weather will impact roadways over the next 24 hours, allowing you to make a better action plan, and effectively dispatch resources.
Easy to Use on Any Device
Threat Net works with any web-enabled browser, providing full control over your map views and displayed data. Simple taps and swipes select data and move the map. Street-level mapping—including highways, interstates and even minor streets—as well as communities is clearly labeled, with street-level detail befitting Threat Net’s high-resolution weather data. Plus, if crews are equipped with a GPS-enabled tablet and 3G/4G reception, they can see their current location pinpointed on the map, relative to surrounding weather.
For smart phones, we provide a complementary app—powerful and easy to use, with most of the capability as the main website. So wherever the task takes you, with Baron Threat Net, mission-critical weather data is just a tap or click away.
Predict Weather Threats
Days in advance, you can monitor the impact that extreme heat or an upcoming weather event may have in your area of operation. Forecast data for precipitation and temperature, for example, help you evaluate how an approaching winter event may affect roadways and communities. Evaluate the likelihood that extreme heat will lead to increased tire blowouts and increased accidents. Or you can use accumulations and wind forecast data to see where a tropical system is likely to cause problems for roadways and evacuation routes.
Get Alerts for Important Locations
Get a vital heads-up on the weather-related threats to your region of responsibility. You can customize the system to alert you for any GPS point or address on the map. Ideal locations might be historically ice or flood-prone roads, and your own assets. Anytime inclement weather or a National Weather Service warning affecting a location is issued, you get an instant alert on the map, through an email, or as a text message on your phone.
Alert types include:
- Proximity alerts for approaching lightning, hail, snow and rain
- Exclusive Baron alerts for severe storms and tornadoes
- National Weather Service warnings
