All Hail!

I am having the time of my life here at WDT. I’ve shifted some focus over to our hail map product.

Weather Decision Technologies is at the forefront of severe weather and is the leading weather data provider. The latest in-house dual-pol hail algorithms able us to produce stunning, highly accurate street-level hail maps for use by those in the roofing, construction and other industries. Unlike other hail maps, our contours are produced from proprietary hail algorithms utilizing high resolution dual-pol radar data at all elevation scans. Computing clusters at our state-of-the-art, redundant data center process this information in real-time, outputting hailswath data every hour. This is the fastest, most reliable data available on the market today!

By 7:09 Ft Worth, TX was under full assault with falling hail measuring up to 3″ in diameter. The detail of the hail maps being generated were fascinating to me as I also watched radar simultaneously.

HailSwath I am having a blast. I finally feel I’ve landed in field I can be passionate about. Because I love weather, it has felt like I’ve been on vacation since Christmas.

Now that I am the hail guru here, (their words not mine) stay tuned for more hail focused posts.
