Client-Customized Weather Forecasts

For the many businesses that require highly specific information from a weather forecast, generic forecasts fail to provide the insights and level of detail needed.

Weather Command® offers a better solution: customized weather forecasts designed to meet your precise needs, whatever they might be. Weather Command® clients use these customized forecasts for a variety of purposes, such as:

  • Hour by Hour heat index and wind chill forecasting for strategic planning by a local school district.
  • Planning production quantities for manufacturing seasonal items, based on a six-month long-range forecast
  • Planning movie and television production schedules based on location-specific forecast information

Additionally, our experienced radio broadcast professionals can deliver forecasts for any location in the country, live or taped, at any time, right from our studios.

Customized Forecast Features & Benefits

  • 24/7 Availability: Talk to a professional meteorologist every time you call. We’re ready with up-to-the-minute weather details, so you never have to second guess radar data or listen to a pre-recorded message.
  • Completely Personalized Data: We will provide only the specific weather forecast data that you need. This might include any combination of a range of parameters, including precipitation (type, intensity, duration and amount – both liquid and solid), cloud cover, sunshine, wind speed, wind gusts, wind direction, wind shifts, speed changes, high and low temperatures, dew point, relative humidity, wind chill and heat index. Even the format of the report will be customized to your preference and your convenience.
  • Easy-to-Understand Color Codes: We don’t just put out a forecast. Our experienced meteorologists give you actionable insights to understand how the forecast will impact your operations. Easy-to-understand color coding – green, yellow, red and black – mean you can tell at a glance how your business will be affected, so you can make confident, timely decisions.

Dear Valued Weather Command® Client,

In this ever changing environment and unprecedented times we find ourselves in due to the outbreak of coronavirus (COVID-19), we here at Weather Command® have been hard at work ensuring a continuity of our forecasting and warning services that includes continuing consultations with our forecast staff. We are working entirely remotely away from our main Palatine office. 

You should not see any change in the forecast or warning products that we typically issue. While we are working remotely, you can continue to call in to our forecast center at 847-963-9000 and hit 2 to speak with a forecaster. That call will get routed to the Forecasters on duty for that shift. We would advise that this option be reserved for the most critical of forecast or warning questions.

We will also be opening up a new alternate ability of weather questions being directed to our forecast center email address at . Questions directed to this email address would be answered as quickly as possible, most likely within 30 minutes of the question being posted. Questions sent here would be for non-critical weather situations.

As a staff, we will (as needed) be increasing the amount of important information that we send out with our Blackboard mass messaging system to help keep everyone informed of important weather information. With our Blackboard messages, hopefully we will answer questions that you might have that and would mitigate the need for a phone or email weather question.

We will also be posting any urgent information on our webpage at . We appreciate all of your patience with us as we transition and maintain this new posture in our operations at this time.

Wishing you all well!
