Weather and the leisure industry
Weather plays a key role in the success of an outdoor event, from planning the best time to erect marquees to providing extra cover for electrical equipment in the rain.
Frozen or waterlogged sports grounds can lead to cancelled games and significant financial losses. Sports clubs and organisers of sports events including football, cricket, motor racing, athletics and tennis, require weather information for advanced planning and for daily operations.
Extreme weather such as high winds, heavy rain or even intense heat can create safety risks for all involved. The only way of avoiding potentially dangerous weather situations is to have a reliable forecasting service.
The leisure industry is all about entertainment so organisers need to take every precaution to ensure the weather doesn't stop the fun.
