What is Authentic Weather? Why it matters.
SERVICES ~ FORECASTS ~ LEADERSHIP ~ JOIN US IN THE MEDIA ~ OUR STORY  LEGAL


In the Foot's Forecast team, we believe a local weather forecast, to be truly authentic, should be both data-based and managed by qualified forecasters in your city, county or community. 

When weather becomes "the problem of the day," over 500,000 visitors choose to make our team content a valuable tool in their decision making. The passion of our forecasters has earned the loyal readership of nearly 80,000 in social media across the US and globally. Our daily reach extends from London to BaltimoreMiami to Seattleand across the Pacific to Auckland, New Zealand. 



HOW ARE WE DIFFERENT? With teams in 30 U.S. states and in 2 continents, we can say with confidence we are local with a global perspective. 

Our readers and clients receive site- and community-specific local forecasts one cannot obtain anywhere else. The content is produced by experienced meteorologists and senior forecasters, with a built-in cadre of social-media savvy junior forecasters pursuing atmosphere science. Our experience with readers is one built on earning their trust. 

AUTHENTIC, NOT AUTOMATED. Analyses from computer models are essential tools to understanding the complexities of weather & climate. On our team, collaboration among forecasters is the crucial component that keeps content for you relevant, accurate and centered on real-time solutions. Group that rely on us include:
  • Mayors from large cities, emergency managers, event coordinators and the public alike seek our advice for high impact events, and outdoor events  
  • Parents, students and teachers call us their "go-to source" for local weather, and school officials in dozens of districts rely on our analyses.
  • Event Coordinators: Performers such as Fiction20Down and officials working the Dew Tour have turned to us before large events, so there are no surprises. 

REAL SERVICES, LOCAL SOLUTIONS. Our hallmark approach to leveraging the forecast for our clients is when we "fuse" weather with pop culture using social media. It's called  "Fusion Forecasting." Here's an example from Summer 2012 by our Surf & Sail Team in Ocean City, MD:


"Dew Tour Finishes Strong"

Despite four days of sunshine and good conditions at the August 2012 Pantech USA Dew Tour, rain crept in on the last day. The final Skate competitions, by athletes around the world, faced cancellation due to wet conditions. But our on-site team knew this was not headline to be. Read about how our weather intelligence services helped the event achieve a photo-perfect, and safe finish: "Dew Tour Finishes Strong

Again, sorry for 2x postings, didn't used to happen on the old message boards... (hint, hint) :-)

BioPat said...

I have to agree temps will be critical as the storm moves in on the Atlantic coast. But why oh why on another weekend??

NeedaSnowday said...

yeah BP.. I NeedaSnowday!!!!!!

Swing, battah...

Enough with the didn't-happen storms. Bring on spring and the turkey season already....

Mike Cheuvront said...

WOW, The GFS is just a pile of human waste! It is the most unreliable forecasting model of them all. It has handled the last two winters like garbage.I also am tired of keeping my hopes up.I am ready to surrender to spring and some fishing.

ravensbbr said...

GFS = Good For S...

:-P

Snow in forecast has now changed to Rain in forecast. Oh well, another winter that was, the snow blower was tuned up ready for work this year, but in the next week time to switch places with the mower once again.

I'd still love to have faith in the flakes but I'll have to move that back about 9 months. Hopefully we won't be having a dreadfully hot summer after another mild winter.

ravensbbr said...

Yeah, think it's time to stick a fork in it. Henry M. insists we'll have one "major" event before March 10, but zero confidence here on that one.

ravensbbr said...

Everyone remember to drain the gas out of the snowthrowers. I forgot to do that 2 years ago...sucked.

:-)

NeedaSnowday said...

After the derecho, we bought a generator..... thinkin', winter weather could potentially knock out electricity....how wrong were we??

I see those big blue blobs on map and pine away for just one measurable snow ..... oh well, saved my back from shoveling huh?

ravensbbr said...

Hey, Need, at least we won the Super Bowl. I'll trade that for a 2010 winter every now and then. :-)

BioPat said...

Horray for the Ravens and all their loyal fans as well. It sure would have been nice to have a snowday after that Super Bowl but I think we all went to work on adrenalin after that game!
I don't know about March 10th, I would bet on a rain storm instead of snow in Baltimore; well maybe ice but only if the temps turn cold again, which I do not see happening as the sun time extends each day. Who knows, after the past two winters, but I do dread another hot, dry summer. I remain thankful for a/c.
