We use data from the National Weather Service, weather radar imagery from the NWS and human meteorologists to produce our products.
We Provide Expert Data
First, we monitor bulletins from the NOAA Storm Prediction Center (SPC) on a daily basis, plus review real-time radar mosaics across the country.
Weather Is Spotted
When our team of meteorologists spots a severe weather event, it is logged and we determine if any of our clients have been affected.
What must be remembered is that the SPC data only depicts severe weather events that have been reported through the proper channels, to the NWS. This is the first step.
The Roof Alert team utilizes guidance and rules from the NWS and several Federal manuals on the usage and interpretation of NEXRAD data.
Once the Roof Alert team determines that severe weather occurred, we download the appropriate NEXRAD weather radar data from the various radar sites and perform a manual analysis of weather conditions to ensure a thorough, in-depth look at each individual severe weather event.
ALL Roof Alert™ meteorologists have been trained and certified in the analysis and interpretation of NEXRAD data in accordance with Federal guidelines. This distinction is unique to Roof Alert™, when compared to other similar commercial companies.
Time and Occurrence Report
By using calibrated products from the NWS weather radar (NEXRAD) and ground reports from the SPC, our meteorologists were able to determine which clients were affected, the times of occurrence for hail and wind, and the size and magnitude of the hail and wind event.
