AccuWeather provided event planners with advanced warnings as severe storms rolled in during a major July 4th event, helping to protect attendees and staff.  

Weather plays a pivotal role in outdoor events, and the ability to accurately predict and prepare for severe weather conditions is crucial for event planners.
