Forecasts Where You Need Them
Extreme Temperature Forecasting
The ability to maximize loads during varying environmental conditions while maintaining ground clearance, equipment integrity and safety is critical. Extreme temperatures not only affects dynamic line rating, but can affect the overall health of utility lines as well.
Ice and frost accumulation power lines during the winter season can pose significant issues for utilities and their maintenance crews. When combined with high winds, the threat can become serious.
Routine field maintenance, repairs or construction are daily activities for utility operations. Mitigating safety risks to field crews is always a top priority. That includes risks from severe and rapidly changing weather.
