Today, the company provides weather radar, visualization software, hydrological and roadway modeling, digital solutions and value-added weather data through multiple distribution channels. A privately-owned small business based in Huntsville, Alabama, the company has approximately 100 employees. It’s more than just an accurate forecast. It’s the difference between knowing what might be headed your way and knowing precisely what comes next. Critical Weather Intelligence is insightful, decisive—and it can be the difference between life and death. Allowing you to prepare accurate forecasts for precipitation, winds, cloud cover, temperature and more over the next 96 hours, the Baron forecast model is custom-deployable anywhere in the world.
That day would change Bob Baron—and, ultimately, the entire weather industry—forever. Because that was the day Bob dedicated his life to saving countless others through better technology. Since then, the Baron story has been one of constant innovation; a never-ending quest to advance and refine the systems we all count on to keep us safe from severe weather.
Since Baron’s founding in 1990, the nucleus of our mission has always been providing the most accurate, most precise localized forecast of severe weather events. And over the past two decades, we’ve also led the way in the development of Doppler radar, weather data analysis and distribution technologies, localized weather alert protocols, and integrated weather systems for automakers, commercial aircraft, the National Weather Service, and international governments. Today, our state-of-the-art, tornado-hardened headquarters in Huntsville, Alabama provides meteorological data processing for companies, governments, and people all over the world.
