New Rainfall Forecast Layers in Weather Defender

by Rory Groves        May 8, 2013  |  10:19 am  |  Category: Latest News | Tips & Tricks

New precipitation forecast layers in Weather Defender give you the ability to predict rainfall up to 7 days out. Quantitative Precipitation Forecast predicts the total amount of expected liquid precipitation in a given forecast period.

The following periods are now available:

  • Day 1: 0-24 hours from present
  • Day 2: 24-48 hours
  • Day 3: 48-72 hours
  • Days 4-5: Multi-day forecast covering 72-120 hours from present
  • Days 6-7: Multi-day forecast covering 120-168 hours
  • Days 1-7: Multi-day forecast covering 0-168 hours (the entire next week)
Here is a screenshot of Day 1-7 Forecast taken today (looks like it will be very wet in New England):

Using the new layers is simple. Just navigate to the Forecast section of the Layer Browser and scroll until you see the Precipitation layers listed (see below).

Click Add to Map under the layer(s) you wish to add. As with all layer functionality in Weather Defender, the Precipitation Forecast layers will automatically update at regular intervals.

Hail tracking for contractors before and after recent hail storms is now easier with LiveHailReports.com—the newest online weather-tracking product suite from the award-winning weather software developer SWIFT Weather. The new hail tracking software provides real-time and recent hail storms damage reports enabling contractors to locate residential and commercial properties which need their services after hailstorm damage, wind and tornado damage. Contractors especially will benefit from the new easy-to-use, printer-friendly Summary Reports feature that lets the user find any hail, wind or tornado report in the last five years up to the present. Street-level graphics show exactly where the hail fell and the simple online search by city and date lets contractors find individual storms or all storms for a selected city.

"Hail tracking with our detailed hailstorm damage summaries and street-level graphics allows contractors to quickly identify people who need their services," said SWIFT Weather CEO Rory Groves. "Our hail reports are very affordable and easily the best value on the market," concluded Groves.

In addition to the new Summary Reports on LiveHailReports.com, other products also include Real-Time Hail Tracker enabling contractors to beat their competitors to a job by pinpointing the exact location of homes and businesses which have suffered recent hailstorm damage – anywhere in the United States –showing up-to-the-minute activity. With this product an aerial photography map of homes and businesses is interactive, allowing the user to export data to Microsoft Excel or Google Earth. In addition, Historical Hail Data web-based interface product allows users to look up a year’s worth of hailstorm damage reports at one time. Quickly browse through a listing of hail reports for a particular state and plot over an interactive map and export data to Microsoft Excel or Google Earth.
