"Weather Verification Reports are built upon proprietary, hyper-local (1x1 sq. km grid) climate data, providing the end-user with the ability to more confidently verify weather conditions at the property address level."

The forensic analysis of property loss damage reportedly caused by weather requires both timely and precise high-resolution climate data. Weather Analytics, a rapidly expanding DC-based data and analytics firm, has leveraged its team of specialized meteorologists, data scientists and its best-in-class repository of hourly climate data to develop an enhanced Weather Verification Report. These on-demand, decision-ready reports are designed to be utilized as a pre-screening tool to identify potentially fraudulent or misrepresented claims.

Weather Verification Reports are built upon proprietary, hyper-local (1x1 sq. km grid) climate data, providing the end-user with the ability to more confidently verify weather conditions at the property address level. Reports are accessible both online and via API integration, and are available for the contiguous forty-eight U.S. states in either single or multi-variable format outputs.

“The time and cost savings associated with the introduction of this near real-time solution is a vast departure from the traditional business practice of employing meteorologists to manually collect and reconcile weather information from free, statistically unreliable sources of local weather station data,” stated Eric Taylor, President of Insurance at Weather Analytics. “We are excited to provide this new fraud detection solution to the U.S. market, and believe it will be a valuable and effective tool for both insurance companies and claims adjusters alike.”

Weather Verification Report options include your choice of key variables that include wind speed, hail, rain, freezing rain, snowfall and temperature. Hourly data is analyzed and provided for the ninety-six hour period surrounding the date and time of reported loss. Reports are then scored with a red, yellow or green indicator icon that serves as a simple rating of potential property damage due to weather, thus providing the end-user with streamlined decision-making capabilities.
