Weather Logistics launches quarterly flood risk tool

Nottingham-based Weather Logistics is launching new software that produces climate model simulations for the coming quarter, and provides advisory around local hazards such as heatwaves and flooding.

The company says it hopes to “revolutionise the way industry views climate risk” with its proprietary seasonal forecast technology, helping users develop resilience plans accordingly.

Company founder, Chris Nankervis, said: “Our technology delivers climate information not currently available about weather events that affect operational planning. Flooding accounts for the largest natural hazard losses. Therefore, seasonal predictions of rainfall on a town or city scale can greatly improve a community’s capacity to protect their households, businesses and livelihoods.”

The launch comes following a successful collaboration this April, where the company’s hazard model was independently assessed by the National Physical Laboratory, via Innovate UK’s Analysis for Innovators programme.
