Millions of tourists flock to New York each year, with many of them making the pilgrimage to one of its iconic skyscrapers, the One World Observatory (OWO), sitting 541 meters above ground level. In the past, OWO relied on publicly available meteorological data to help plan work schedules, but it lacked long-term weather insights, increasing the risk of overstaffing on low- and zero-visibility days which collapse ticket counts from thousands to hundreds per day. Armed with concrete, data-driven insights into how the weather impacts its business through The Weather Company's Weather Signals, Legends can make smarter employee scheduling decisions and forecast weather-driven food and beverage demand at event venues around the world.
