The focus of modern specialized meteorological support for road transport involves implementation of the possibility to provide traffic participants with prompt information on the current weather conditions. One of the promising directions of implementing innovative approaches to improvement of traffic safety provision is the development of a system aimed at informing drivers about the meteorological and road traffic conditions on the lying ahead section of the highway based on the use of modern «nowcasting» technique. Integration of modern techniques for monitoring heavy rainfall by means of the Doppler weather radar system and the automatic meteorological support system (ASMO) can significantly improve the road traffic safety.
