Accurate and dependable weather alerts for your business can mean the difference between life and death. For this reason, we hold and license 58 patents, many of which explicitly surround the efficiency and effectiveness of our alerting capabilities. To be sure, trusting free sources of actionable weather alerting will not always result in a positive outcome.
Real-time lightning proximity alerts are pushed immediately to your email and mobile app when detection of a strike is within one, two, or three user-defined range rings. You'll receive an all-clear notification when lightning has not been detected within the same radius for at least 30 minutes.
We deliver blistering fast National Weather Service (NWS) watches, warnings, and advisories to your email and on your phone. Unlike county-based alerts, WeatherOps only notifies when an asset location is within a polygon issued by the NWS. We’ll let you know the time the product issues, when it expires, and include associated text.
Live Weather Support
Our forecast team monitors your asset location 24/7. When we determine a threat is possible, we issue WDT WeatherOps alerts. Our alerts are specific to your location and thresholds, in short, going above and beyond those issued by the National Weather Service.
WDT’s patent portfolio includes 58 held and licensed patents covering multiple new weather-centric delivery technologies for the purpose of protecting our clients and our intellectual property. This ongoing development of new patented capabilities continues WDT’s leadership position, strong history of product innovation, and development of cutting edge technologies.

The single largest environmental threat to offshore and coastal assets is tropical weather. Consequently, we’ve developed a series of tools to aid in the decision making process.
Tropical Daily Planner
With attention to detail, our tropical planners outline any storm in any active basin and offer a summary and a forecast track as necessary.
Active Storm Advisory
WeatherOps issues unique advisories at least four times per day containing a full suite of track and intensity information along with a detailed meteorological explanation of the system’s expected evolution and impacts for all tropical cyclones in any active basin.
Early Warning Notification
We consistently watch all basins for tropical cyclone formation, at the same time, we realize other threats are possible too. Early warnings include our tropical weather outlook, high wind and large wave threats, and significant wind shift.
Receive wind forecast speed and ETA along with expected rainfall and storm surge for one or many assets.
T-Times for Offshore Assets
Receive wind forecast speed and ETA to provide a direct assessment of the potential impacts of a tropical cyclone for one or many assets.
Custom Risk & Response
Uniquely, we integrate your site plan and align trigger thresholds for each phase of your response plan. Our report helps you quickly identify where you need be in your plan of action concerning the severity of a storm. Also, we’ll tell you how much time you have until your next stage is reached.
Daily Planners are great for organizing the week, even so, occasionally you require a more detailed, shorter-term forecast – a Weather Check!
