How accurate are these forecasts?
Hailstorm forecasts have improved since then with both extensive experience and special techniques. These techniques have improved both the accuracy and detail of the hailstorm forecasts.
In 2014, further improvements were developed. This enabled pinpointing with some accuracy the timing of the hailstorms as well as the intensity. during 2015, further research into specific modelling are in the development. Upon completion, these new techniques and resources may provide applications for graphics to be released to clients. The graphics will provide locations of where hailstorms may occur. Some of the modelling may pinpoint areas that were affected by hailstorms and timing.
