    Abstract

    The aim of the road weather service is to help drivers to prepare for delays and difficult driving conditions caused by the weather, specifically on days when conditions are most dangerous. In the winter season 2002-2003 the service was produced as a result of cooperation of three organisations. The studied issues were: a) How was the weather on the most accident-prone days and what kind of weather warnings had been given for those days? b) Did the forecasts given by different organisations differ? Were there regional differences inside organisations? c) How well did the weather and road condition forecasting process work?
