Foot's Forecast:
How We Do Weather Differently

Forecaster Jason worked closely with public safety officials from
Ocean City, Maryland during the Pantech Dew Tour in 2011 and 2012 


  • AccuWeather, Inc. is in State College, PA and states their headquarters is the largest concentration of forecast meteorologists in one place. We have over 75  local forecasters and meteorologists spread across the United States. Any hour of the day, we'll come to your office, work in your operations center, or send you a briefing document. We provide a level of on-site and online human interaction you cannot buy from Accuweather. Our difference? We can rapidly respond to your local needs.

    • The Weather Channel LLC is in Atlanta, GA. While hundreds of miles away from actual winter weather, TWC pulls automated content from the NOAA Global Forecast System to produce your "local on the 8's." We personally live through the storms we forecast to you, not report on-site to boost ratings when the weather is interesting. Our difference? We live the local weather with you, every day in your location.

      • The National Weather Service has 122 forecast offices across the nation. Their mission is to "provide weather, water, and climate data, forecasts and warnings for the protection of life and property and enhancement of the local economy." To do this for large populations such as the 9 million across the Baltimore/Washington area requires significant annual federal funding. But to efficiently understand the vast NOAA/NWS information suite, our clients rely on our interpretations of it and explanations of changing weather patterns.  Our difference? We collaborate across state lines to quickly connect you with consistent, actionable information.
