Weather Routing, Inc. (WRI) port/site forecasts are designed to provide
up-to-date weather forecast data which is displayed in a clear/concise
and easy to read manner. WRI's Forecasts alert you 48 to 72 hours ahead of any threatening weather conditions.
Whether it be high winds, heavy swell, flooding, snow, or ice, our forecasts give you advanced warning so that you
can make the necessary preparations for bad weather.
WRI's team of experienced meteorologists specializes in marine and coastal weather forecasting
and analysis and are available for consultation 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Unlike local
government sources, forecasts are tailored for your specific location and customized to meet your
specific needs and weather situation.
Additionally, access to WRI's Dolphin Website is included with our forecasting service,
and provides access to a suite of weather related tools and data, including graphical forecast maps out to 180 hours for
winds/seas and pressure, visibility, precipitation, detailed tropical analysis and forecasts, radar and satellite imagery, and more.
WRI's team of experienced Tropical Meteorologists have been forecasting, analyzing, and monitoring Tropical systems for over 50 years.
WRI maintains constant surveillance of the tropical regions of the world,
issuing daily tropical summaries for all the seasonally active major ocean
basins with all of your affected port/sites listed.
If an area is suspect for tropical development, WRI classifies the system as a "tropical low", and issues
forecast positions and intensity - often 2-3 days ahead of government agencies. This additional lead time
is critical for the safety of your port/site. WRI's tropical advisories are provided in addition to our forecasts.
