Transportation and tourism sectors are dependent on inter-annual climate variability and also affected by climate change. Transportation safety is strongly weather dependent during the winter season, when road and driving conditions are challenging. Timely installation of winter tires is essential for safe driving conditions when temperature falls to near 0°C and roads might be covered by ice and snow. Forecasting the onset/offset of winter season, especially the starting time of winter tire installation is important as much for tire companies and public for preparedness and logistic reasons.
Tourism stakeholders need information on future seasonal climatic conditions during different seasons that make possible for them to adapt to the forthcoming changes in the length and quality of climate-dependent tourism seasons. The newly created seasonal tourist indicators for the Greek tourism companies foster the competitive relationships between destinations determining precisely the tourism demand and thus the profitability of tourism enterprises.
