Weather Shows have formed an important niche in Radio Broadcasts, from earliest of times. Radio Broadcast Stations and websites provide weather and traffic conditions and forecasts, both daily and hourly, which proves critical for listeners commuting by road and for even those who wish to plan an outdoor trip to the local park or simply for a barbeque lunch. Radio Broadcasts Stations have the infrastructure and capability to provide expert and reliable meteorological reports and advice, in frequent intervals, allowing radio listeners leverage this benefit, by just tuning in.
The Big Apple of New York releases a Weather Show called Traffic and Weather Together, on its Internet Radio Broadcast website, KOMO News Radio of Washington, and a number of other Radio Broadcast Stations are well known for their daily and real time weather and traffic updates, they host. CBS Radio, perhaps one of the largest Radio Broadcast Station in the United States, reaching millions of listeners daily, employs meteorologists to determine weather patterns. Traffic on busy routes in large cities, are constantly monitored by cameras, and helicopters, information which is then analyzed and shared with listeners through Radio Broadcasts. Commuters often rely on Weather Shows to ascertain traffic conditions for their travel routes. Satellite Radio provides real time weather conditions to aircraft pilots about weather conditions within their route and destination.
Most places are known to have brash weather conditions, often changing by the hour during some seasons. Heavy rains, landslides, snowstorms and sometimes threats of a natural disaster, leave citizens anxious and impatient to know more about possible subsequences. Most citizens have to continue with work and commute outdoor, in order to keep the economy alive, and avoiding an activity based on a frail weather condition is not an option for many. Radio Broadcast Stations understand this implication and constantly provide citizens with appropriate cautions, with advice to retreat to safe areas based on a well calculated warning. State authorities and regional Police Departments often rely on this medium, to air their instructions.
