Our Process and Methodology
The first step in preparing a CST report is to determine where and when wintry precipitation fell. WeatherWorks' meteorologists use recorded observations from surface observing stations, Doppler radar imagery and a network of over 1,000 web cams (among other tools) to achieve this task.
Then, storm-total data is collected from a variety of sources including National Weather Service cooperative observers / storm spotters, observing networks run by colleges and universities, road and highway department personnel, private weather observers, as well as our own staff meteorologists and interns. The snowfall data is analyzed for spatial and temporal consistency, ensuring no errant or biased observations are included in the analysis.
We do not just rely on storm totals from an airport several miles away or even a computer generated estimate. All snow totals we provide to you are reviewed, verified and deemed as accurate by our expert Meteorologists.
