Riskpulse collects data from the following sources:
- National Weather Service

After activating Mobile tracking, a risk score will be displayed and this score is measured through a numeric scale with an affiliated color.*
Green score of 1-8: Low risk weather conditions that pose little to no risk to delivery time.
Orange score of 9-16: Medium risk weather conditions that pose moderate risk to delivery time.
Red score of 17-25: High risk weather conditions that pose large risk to delivery time. If possible, taking an alternative route is encouraged.
