0 New Weathercheck - Exclusive forecasts straight to your radar

pointPORT headland gbMarketH 110112z08 meteogramAGRO highHeadland Amenity introduces Weathercheck, its first detailed weather forecasting tool to pinpoint a specific location such as a golf club or racecourse.

Turf Managers will be able to access vital, personalised information on temperature, wind speed and direction and predicted rainfall. Choosing a general 7 day forecast or a more detailed forecast, which breaks down into three hour segments (and graphically illustrates rainfall intensity and timing), provides an accurate overview of conditions.

The RainNow option produces a 25km radius 'rain radar map' with the chosen facility at the centre. RainNow gives past rainfall over the last two hours and projected rainfall looking ahead for 90 minutes - allowing turf managers the opportunity to plan essential tasks.

Technical Director Mark Hunt says that Weathercheck is the result of a long-standing partnership with Meteoblue, a specialist meteorology company based in Basel, Switzerland. "We've been providing general weather forecasts to our customers for the past five years, but as our partnership with Meteoblue developed we began work on a specific weather package tailored to the turf industry and incorporating up to date forecasting technology tailored to a specific location," he explained.

Headland Weathercheck is designed to go live later this Spring but customers are free to sign up now.
