Prediction of Weather Elements and Impact on Congestion

The potential now exists to determine the correlation between weather elements and congestion and to apply such knowledge to predict weather related congestion and incidents. This linkage of weather to traffic may be one of the only non-recurring congestion phenomena that can be accurately predicted. If the research is successful, it will provide a means for Department of Transportation (DOT) personnel to prepare for imminent weather-related events.
