Our work is mostly working at height, in the open countryside so the weather can be our best friend and our worse enemy. We love windy.com’s approach to weather mapping with impressive GUI’s and a massive range of sources and reports.
Strong Wind Gusts
If wind gusts over 22 miles per hour are predicted, we will suspend permits to climb which may delay installations. This may be confirmed on-site and will be determined by engineers who will have the final say.
Lightning striking just a few miles away can charge the atmosphere with electromagnetic static charge and this will find paths to ground to discharge. This discharge can ruin hardware so please unplug hardware from mains power during storms.
