Introduction Edit

METRo stands for Model of the Environment and Temperature of Roads. METRo is a road forecast software created in 1999 and distributed under the GPL license by Environment and Climate change Canada.

With the help of observations provided by a road weather station (road weather information system, RWIS) and the atmospheric forecast, METRo can, amongst other things, predict the roads conditions with particular interest such as: freezing rain, accumulation of snow, frost and thaw.

METRo is written in python and fortran 90 and can perform a 48 hours forecast on a standard desktop computer in less than 2 seconds.

METRo is included in the Commission for Basis Systems Software Registry of the World Meteorological Organization ( Global Data-processing Forecasting System).
