What Does Site-Specific Mean For You When It Comes to Weather?

Contributed by Kim Cuozzo, Marketing Associate, Forensic Weather Marketing Team

Often, our new clients are surprised by the fact that we can be site-specific and determine what happened at an exact site of loss. They may have previously only received data from the nearest airport or observing station when obtaining weather conditions for a case or claim. These people wonder what is so beneficial about a site-specific report. Data from the nearest site may be good enough in certain cases, but in the vast majority of them, it’s not. Why? Think about the last snowstorm you experienced. Your friend in the next town over may have gotten a couple of inches more or less than you, or the snow may have stopped falling sooner in your town as opposed to theirs. How about the last thunderstorm that affected your area? Rainfall amounts can vary from street to street, along with hail occurrences and lightning strikes. Just because one area saw large hail or flooding doesn’t mean that another nearby area also did. In many locations, the closest observing sites can be 30, 40, 50, or more miles away, and data from those sites would be a completely inaccurate representation of what happened at the site of loss.

Having accurate documentation of what happened at the site of loss is crucial for winning cases, properly handling claims, or performing accurate investigations. Our experts can pinpoint what happened at the site of loss, which our clients find to be a huge asset. This accuracy and attention to detail is why our clients use us again and again.
