Some uses for weather alerts include:


Weather plays an important role in construction. OpenWeather Alerts give construction teams  advance notice of storms, extreme heat, or freezing conditions. This enables teams to proactively plan their activities, bre it rescheduling tasks, protecting materials, or ensuring worker safety. Delays are minimized, and ultimately, projects stay on track and within budget.

Grid Management:

Power grids, be they traditional or renewable-based, are at the mercy of the elements.  OpenWeather Alerts give operators crucial information about approaching storms, high winds, or other events that could jeopardize power delivery.  Proactive maintenance, load balancing, and strategic resource deployment become possible, lessening the impact of outages and building a more resilient grid.

Film and TV Production:  

Outdoor shoots are notoriously weather-dependent. A sudden downpour or unexpected heatwave can impact filming, meaning lost time and costly reshoots. OpenWeather Alerts, with their precise forecasting and alerts for specific locations, help production teams stay agile.


Farmers rely on intricate weather knowledge for everything from planting schedules to protecting crops. OpenWeather Alerts deliver hyperlocal forecasts tailored to individual farms, along with warnings about frost, hail, or drought conditions. This allows farmers to make informed decisions about irrigation, harvesting, and utilizing protective measures – maximizing yields and safeguarding their livelihoods.

Whether you need ready-made severe weather updates or alerts tailored to your needs, OpenWeather has a solution. Use weather data to plan ahead, reduce risk, and make better decisions.
