Winter Weather Forecasting


One of our custom services we can offer is winter weather forecasting for snow removal companies.

Located in the Twin Cities of Minneapolis & St. Paul, MN; we are hyper sensitive and aware of weather and forecasting in this region. Therefore, we think we are well suited to offer winter weather forecasting services for the Twin Cities and surrounding communities.

Our forte in the weather industry is in model data guidance, and therefore that puts us in a unique position to have access to all of the world's bleeding edge data. This allows us to have an edge on competitors by having the most up to date guidance, highest resolution imagery and most highly sought-after data available -- as we're the guys that actually provide the raw data to meteorologists! In fact, many of the local Minneapolis TV stations (and some National Weather Service employees) hire us for their raw meteorological data that they use to make forecasts.

We cater to those providing:

  • Ice Removal
  • Snow Blowing
  • Snow Plowing
  • Winter Maintenance
  • Sidewalk Shoveling
  • Commercial Snow Removal
  • Snow Hauling
  • Clearing Driveways & Parking Lots
  • Snow & Ice Management
  • Salting & Sanding
Plowed Road

F5Weather & our forecasters are not liable for any decisions you make with the information we provide you. Refunds are not granted. Weather forecasting is an inexact science and errors are an expected in this line of work. We take pride in what we do, and work extra hard to minimize errors. We do this partly through experience, but also through all the data that we have available to us. By looking at more than 1 model (we could look at 10-20 models), along with live observations, satellite & radar data as it's constantly updating, we are able to minimize errors by eliminating outliers in the guidance and focus on the 'most likely' scenario. Many meteorologists will cut corners by simply looking at one scenario. Maybe it's right, but many times you will miss something important, or perhaps be completely wrong if that guidance is an outlier on the next storm.

We try to minimize errors further by limiting our service area to a very specifc area (Twin Cities). This allows us to focus on one area without being distracted elsewhere. We also try to minimize error by providing frequent updates and constantly monitoring changes in the situation.

Our forecasts will be as specific as possible while maintaining reasonable best guess ranges that should allow for error. In other words, if we can't promise 1.7" of snow, we won't say 1.7" of snow. We will be more general so as to set the expectations properly. Our forecasts will be as specific as possible within reasonable statistical abilities.

We won't hype. We're all science, and ask you to set your expectations properly as well.
