How will the weather be measured for my event?

April 18th, 2014 | Posted by Alicia Milillo in weather insurance

US Weather Insurance offers weather coverage all over the country and the location of your event will play a big part in the cost of coverage. The location of your event will also determine how and where the rainfall, snowfall, or temperature is recorded the day of the event. US Weather Insurance offers three options when it comes to measuring the weather for your big day.

The first option is the most popular and also included in the cost of coverage, the closest national weather station or airport to the event. This option will always be listed on the quote along with the estimated distance from there to the event location. This distance is very important when the client makes the decision on whether to use the included airport location or choose one of the other two options. Our consultants usually recommend using the closest national weather station if you are within 15-20 miles of the event, any further and the weather can be completely different at the two locations.

The second option is for the client to hire a certified weather observer to attend the event and measure the weather from the event location. US Weather Insurance will have to approve the observer to make sure they are qualified. The third option is to use a third party Doppler radar system that will measure the weather based on the zip code of your event location. This is the most popular option for events that are not located near an airport or weather station. There is a small daily fee for this option however it is the most accurate since it will be measured at your event location. If you have any questions, one of our weather consultants can certainly help you out!
