July 30, 2020

When rain showers approaching the Kansas City Metro kept falling apart yesterday, the radar picture looked promising to road crews, roofers and others planning their outdoor workday.

Business Decision Support

These are the days that make or break a contractor’s budget.  Anybody can look at a weather app but it pays to have an experienced meteorologist who’s watching your project and can help you know when to chance it or when you need to re-plan the day.

Even though this rain was in our forecast, a blank radar might have tempted contractors into making a costly bad decision. That’s why we have their back with profit saving, timely updates.
