We introduce a real-time weather notification system in which drivers are notified with any bad weather conditions on the road including icy conditions or foggy conditions. Different type of bad weather requires different type of detection. We combine all cases by placing sensors uniformly to the road with an intelligent vehicles that communicate with the surrounding vehicles and the road itself. Our system depends on the spread sensors placed uniformly on the highway to monitor the road traffic. Cat eye's on the road which has been used for years as a reflectors to help drivers over night or at bad weather conditions can be more smart or intelligent by adding sensing capabilities. Intelligent vehicles can help in detecting some types of bad weather conditions and with the help of the sensors over the road using a combination of vehicle-to-vehicle communication and vehicle-to-infrastructure communication, we can reach a system that gives real-time notice for the drivers. Embedded processors are built inside the sensor over the road to allow the node to process these information.
