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.
- Stable: METRo 3.3.1
