Baron Announces Baron Weather Data Archive

Provides detailed access to historical weather data

Huntsville, AL – Baron, the worldwide provider of critical weather intelligence, announces Baron Weather Data Archive, which gives insurers access to an archive of historical weather activity, from radar to value-added tornado, hail and roadway weather data only available from Baron. Baron Weather Data Archive can be integrated in numerous ways, including into actuarial risk models, notification technology, and other applications through an easy-to-implement API with commonly used file formats and protocols. By giving insurers a detailed look at the past, Baron Weather Archive helps increase profitability by driving down claims and better identifying fraud, as well as improving risk management overall.

Baron Weather Data Archive combats the growing switch economy — characterized by policyholders switching from one insurer to another — by enabling insurers to proactively engage customers before (via Baron Weather forecasting products) and after weather events. Insurers can use the Baron Weather Data Archive to pull localized storm data immediately following a recent or historical weather event, to identify and reach out to affected customers with post-event assistance, resulting in better satisfied customers. In addition, Baron Weather Data Archive helps insurers protect against fraud. Adjusters can use the Archive to access historical weather data and confirm a weather event’s impact on a community. This allows claims to be processed and validated faster and in turn protects insurers’ revenue.  The weather data provided by Baron Weather Data Archive can also help pinpoint historically high-risk roadways and locales, helping users of all kinds better manage weather-related risk.

Baron Weather Data Archive provides access to historical data from over 60 weather data products including:

  • Radar data (US, Canadian, Australian, European)
  • Baron Hail Path & Baron High Wind Path
  • Rainfall Data Products
  • Baron Telematics Weather
  • Global Radar
  • Surface Conditions
  • Fire and Smoke Plumes
  • And more…
