Real-time road weather conditions

Our unique system of weather warnings enables us to alert motorists to the imminent arrival of weather conditions that may have a negative impact on traffic flow, road safety and journey times. Typical events include sudden rain showers, snowfalls, gusty winds and black ice.

Our real-time weather info is updated every five minutes and broken down into 5-kilometer segments of the entire road network covered by our services. Weather warnings are transmitted as events, with details of the type of event, its geolocation, and the area or road segment affected.
