Stay ahead of severe weather. Protect your people, property and profits.

SkyGuard® severe weather warnings protect people and facilities in emergencies and are communicated instantly with a high level of accuracy through multiple channels and are customized to your needs.

AccuWeather’s team of Certified Storm Warning Meteorologists develop SkyGuard® warnings specifically for the severe weather threats and locations that matter to each individual client, including tornadoes, hail, flooding, ice, black ice, high winds, lightning, wildfires, unsafe air quality, and much more. SkyGuard® warnings are backed by always on-call expert consultants to help businesses and institutions make early, actionable decisions.

Additionally, SkyGuard® warnings help save money by reducing unnecessary responses to false alarms—when a government warning is issued for a broad region, but no threat is expected to cross a specific area.
