Accurate weather forecasts are essential for mitigating the impact of potentially hazardous conditions on rail networks, ensuring public safety and optimising maintenance activity.

Making the right decision to mitigate the effects of weather on the rail network is extremely challenging yet crucially important. Ensuring public and staff safety and minimising delays requires decisions based on the best weather forecasts.

Strong winds, heavy rainfall and high temperatures are some of the potentially hazardous weather conditions that can affect railways during the summer months. The threat of adverse weather throws up a real challenge for railway network operators regarding safety, planning, operational and maintenance activities.

Our forecasting models deliver accurate route-specific forecasts, including temperature, wind and rainfall, for any rail network in the UK.
