Long Range Weather for General Contractors

Weather plays a significant role in achieving your contracted completion date.

Some trades and tasks are more weather-sensitive than others. Having the ability to develop a schedule with weather-sensitive tasks being completed during dry periods can be the difference between completing a project on target and liquidated damages.

Optimize your schedule around the weather

Now when you nail down a new construction project and begin to layout your schedule, you can add potentially wet periods (Risky Days) into your schedule. With this understanding, you can adjust the most weather-sensitive portion of your schedule to occur during the forecasted drier periods.

The dryday™ Advantage

Over the past ten years, projects planned with dryday™ have enjoyed significant odds on their side with accuracy up to 87%.

Planning on your own puts you at additional risk

During that same time period, dryday™ forecasts outperformed planning on your own by a factor of almost three to one. This means that if you were planning with dryday™ forecasts during that period, roughly three out of four dryday™ forecasts would have provided you better odds over planning on your own.

The opposite is also true, if you were planning on your own, you would have been at a disadvantage around 75% of the time. Right now when you lay out a critical path, you can’t add a weather factor. You could be scheduling the most weather-sensitive portion of the project right in the middle of a forecasted “Risky” period.

What about using other weather forecasts?

  • Media outlets continuously change their 3-10 day forecasts making them unusable for planning.
  • Other long term weather predictions use Climatology (historical averages) to predict the weather. This strategy has proven to be unreliable.

The dryday™ methodology

The dryday™ forecast system uses exact calculations of a number of forces that have been proven, by extensive testing, to be acting upon our weather at an exact date in the future, at an exact location on earth.

Get Started

The dryday™ long range weather forecast system is the culmination of over 50 years of privately funded meteorological research.

Unlike historical averages, dryday™ forecasts are created using a dynamic model of the atmosphere based on meteorological forces that have been proven, by extensive testing, to be acting upon our weather.

We forecast over 3.2 million locations with published verified historical accuracy of up to 87%.

dryday™ has served 60,000+ customers worldwide with over 65% making repeat purchases.

dryday™ gives you an edge

dryday™ forecasts have consistently outperformed randomly planning on your own.

In fact, over the last ten years, dryday™ forecasts have demonstrated a three to one advantage over random selection.
