A Gulf of Mexico Planner has been released, joining the WeatherOps Winter Weather and Thunderstorm and Rainfall planners introduced earlier this year. Issued daily at 6 am CT, it features an assessment of short-term weather hazards, surface analysis charts, and new wind/wave charts through the upcoming 2.5 days. Those with assets in or near the Gulf Coast will find this planner valuable.
The Gulf of Mexico Planner includes current radar, satellite, and lightning along with a brief forecast for the region. A critical component of managing offshore operations is the ability to identify and assess threats quickly. With just a glance, clients with assets in the area will instantly know what type of hazardous weather may be currently occurring. A 7-day forecast is also included.
Knowing the wind and wave heights will assist offshore energy operations, ship transports, ports, and other shore side facilities. This planner includes that information in easy to understand graphics.
