So, your sales may go down for those days. If the weather condition persists for a long time then it can have a huge impact on your revenue.
Employees may not turn up at work if the weather condition is bad. It may affect your daily work and eventually affect your business. You may not be able to meet certain deadlines. This happens more in areas where there is heavy snow or rainfall that makes it hard to get to the road.
