Cost for Forecasting Services
A set-up fee is charged to allow for research time of the specific mountain area, and to allow the meteorologist to spend a few days getting familiar with the current weather patterns. Forecast will be for the exact location and elevations needed.
An additional fee, based on the complexity of the forecasting and remoteness of the location, is then charged per forecast. Forecasts may include a full discussion of the current pattern and outlook for the extended time period. We will keep you informed about the timing of incoming or outgoing weather systems, and provide as much specific weather information as you need about temps, winds, precip, or whatever other weather variable is important to you. Basically, we are watching the weather for you, so you can concentrate on your climb, event, etc.
MountainWeather will provide specialized forecasts for your most important weather-dependent outdoor activities, such as parties, concerts, or weddings.
Weather monitoring services are also available for insurance purposes or safety concerns for any outdoor event that may be affected or cancelled due to rain, lightning, or other inclement weather. Costs for these services will be based on the amount of time services are required.
