January 1988 the Coastal Weather Research Center has been
providing services for business and industry. Initially, all
weather communication was done by telephone only. However,
by the end of the first year, the Weather Center developed
the Computerized Weather Information Service. Using a modem,
weather forecasts and data could be acquired within seconds.
In 1989, the Center added a weather facsimile service called
Stormcheck. All three services are designed to deliver accurate
and timely information and at the same time meet a client's
budget. The services offered are:
Storm warning is our most comprehensive service. The Weather
Center will place a call to your business to warn of approaching
severe weather. This service is available 24 hours-a-day seven
days-a-week. The service also includes the use of the Computerized
Weather Information Service and Stormcheck. Also, if you need
to talk to the meteorologist-on-duty during normal working
hours, you can call us!
Weather Information Service:
The Weather Center provides an array of information, forecasts,
and warnings on its Computerized Weather Information Service.
This 24 hour-a-day service is designed to combine Weather
Center and National Weather Service products. Special discussions
on severe weather and hurricanes provide an in-depth analysis
of what the weather means to your area. In addition, each
forecast issued by the Coastal Weather Research Center is
followed by a forecast discussion. This discussion breaks
down the forecast into easy to understand terminology. Computerized
Weather is a user friendly system! Of course, if you want
to talk to the meteorologist-on-duty, you can call the Weather
Center during normal working hours. Now available: The Blackwell
Over-surface Hurricane Wind (BLOHW) Model.
Stormcheck is Coastal Weather's facsimile service. This handy
data sheet is faxed every morning and afternoon Monday through
Friday. The FAX contains the forecast, a discussion, marine
information, a surface map, and special data as needed. During
the winter, when a hard freeze is expected within 48 hours,
Stormcheck will have a supplement that will show the projected
hourly temperature profile for the next 48 hours. In this
way you can quickly see the trends and determine the number
of hours the mercury will be above or below critical values.
In addition, with this service and all others, you can call
the Weather Center and talk to the meteorologist-on-duty during
normal working hours.
