If you can accurately predict the weather more than 15 minutes from now in Wisconsin, Sure. We have a slogan, if you don't like the weather, wait 15 minutes.

Just checked for Hustisford Wisconsin, way off. Too cold to open hives today.

Do you plan to work in algorithims for time/temperature/sunlight/rain???? That would be interesting if you could predict honey gains.

The temp was off, Predicted higher than actual.

Yes, ussualy the schedule is pretty set, just dodge the bullets(thunder storms). We do use live radar , and have gone South when the storms went North, etc.

I you want to play with numbers, start tracking and totalizing the product of time, temperature and sunlight. Then calculate in a fudge factor to NOT count the 3 days AFTER a day rain, but not a night rain. And then another fudge factor when it gets too hot, or too dry . We can ussualy guess the nectar flow, but not always.
