When it comes to doing any project or task, choosing the right tools makes all the difference.  Insurance professionals have leveraged weather data for years when making wide-ranging decisions from underwriting risks, insurance premiums, risk management and claims validation, just to name a few. 

Today, weather data is more important than ever before for several reasons including climate change awareness, advancements and reliance upon geospatial imagery and insurance carriers’ ability to augment reams of historical data with real-time information. Making decisions involving weather also calls for using the right tools for the specific project because accuracy matters.

The word “accuracy” is often paired with weather forecasting but not all weather data is the same. Baron has deep meteorological knowledge and talent with a large staff of meteorologists. Baron also knows weather from decades of installing radar systems, collecting and storing weather data, and superior weather visualization tools widely used by media across the US.
