Mobile Weather Team ®, Inc. Can Help! I wish someone could tell me when it will rain! I wonder how long it will last?
Our on-site weather services are used throughout the year at more than 165 PGA Tour events across the country. In addition, our company works several events for the USGA (including all the majors), the LPGA, the PGA of America and other majors. While professional golf is a major market for our company, we also work races, air shows, town festivals, and the largest state fair in North America, The State Fair of Texas.
By combining professional meteorologists and state- of-the-art weather forecasting and prediction equipment, our staff at Mobile Weather Team ®, Inc. provides advance warning of any type of weather situation at outdoor events. Utilizing real-time Doppler radar, lightning and satellite information tailored to each individual event, our staff meteorologists are able to identify and track weather that may adversely affect event operations.

Lightning prediction and detection are essential services provided by Mobile Weather Team ®, Inc. Lightning, the second leading cause of weather-related deaths in the U.S., is monitored by on-site tracking and prediction systems to provide the most current information to help organizers avoid dangerous situations.
Through new technology and a highly qualified staff, Mobile Weather Team ®, Inc. has improved the awareness, preparedness, and safety at numerous outdoor events. Whether working a professional golfing event, a town festival, or the largest state fair in the United States, we stand true to our logo:We Track the Storms and Give You Time to Prepare.
Understanding the Mobile Weather Team ®, Inc. We do more than just track lightning and storms. Behind the scenes we are providing the necessary weather information that will ensure a smooth running event. HERES SOME OF WHAT WE DO
Understanding the Mobile Weather Team ®, Inc. The entire event revolves around the weather. Advance planning is the key for…. NASCAR Officials and Race Teams: They use our pinpoint forecasts of temperature, dew point, humidity, strong winds, frost, fog, rain and even snow to determine track conditions each day. This advance weather information will help prevent unexpected delays and help prevent unnecessary suspensions due to rain and other weather hazards, which in turn, cause delayed finish times. TV (producers & crew): Not only will we help in stormy situations with advance warning of rain and lightning but we also help the blimp pilots, mast operators, tower camera crews and on-air crews in the event of gusty winds, heavy rain and fog. Behind the scenes, TV utilizes our information while planning for each days coverage, rain or shine! With our Mobile Weather Van on-site, we provide real-time weather conditions for use on-air in their TV broadcasts.
Understanding the Mobile Weather Team ®, Inc. The entire event revolves around the weather. Advance planning is the key for…. Event Directors: 1.) Will use our weather forecasts to make critical decisions on delays, suspensions and cancellations due to bad weather. 2.) Merchandising decisions can be made in advance to increase revenue and avert problems. Example: The 2000 LPGA State Farm Rail Classic, perfectly sunny skies and excessive heat would have caused the normal bottled water supply to be depleted on the first day of the tournament. A potential problem was averted because the Mobile Weather Team was on-site forecasting the excessive heat and humidity to continue. Organizers were able to prepare and bring in more water before they ran out.

Unusually wet weather in dry climates, unusually cold weather in warm climates or any sudden change in the weather in the middle of a race can lead to big profits if you are prepared. Extra rain gear for wet weather. Wind shirts, sweaters, gloves and warm beverages for cold weather. Last minute scrambling can be avoided. 4.) Parking: very heavy rain can cause major parking problems. You can avoid those headaches by knowing the weather in advance. 5.) Outdoor functions: avoid unexpected weather disasters by knowing the weather in advance.
