Living in the Midwest, one thing you definitely get used to is snow. We live in a cold climate and there are usually 4 months of snowfall, sometimes up to 6. I remember the day I brought Big Bro home from the hospital, on October 14th – it was snowing. Crazy, I know and while not likely most years, it definitely does happen!
Around here, you just never know when to expect snow but I’ve found a tool that can definitely help us be prepared for the next snowfall – the?SnowCast app?for iOS. This wonderful winter app will?let you know just how many inches of snow your area will get and it can show results for?a 48 hour period. As you can see from the image below, there’s only 0.12 inches of snow expected in my area for the next 43 hours.
The SnowCast app is definitely a great took to help you prepare for winter weather and you can opt in to receive notifications when snow is expected in your area. It’ll show the “now” forecast for the next 6 hours and you can click further for up to 48 hours. You’ll also get NOAA winter weather warnings and advisories. This app is so simple to use and I am quite impressed. Here are5reasons that you need the SnowCast app if you live in a snowy climate.
- Prepare for winter storms?- There’s nothing worse than an unexpected storm and you end up desperately needing something. If you know in advance, then you can stop at the store and stock up on anything that you might need so you don’t have to leave the house until the storm passes and the roads are clear.
- Plan for your commute to work?- Not everyone is lucky enough to stay home during snow storms and if you have to commute to work, the SnowCast app can help you?decide if you need to leave early to get there on time.
- Know if your kids will have a snow day?- This app will help you determine and plan for your kids to have a snow day off of school.
- Make a shovel/plow schedule?-?With SnowCast, you’ll know how much snow is coming by the hour so you can figure out if you need to shovel now or later.
- Travel planning?- Traveling really blows in the snow and there are often accidents because of it. But with this app, you can know in advance if you need to change your travel plans.
One of the features that I really like about SnowCast is the radar feature. It’s fast and accurate so you know just what to expect. You’ll never have to wonder about winter weather with this handy little tool so?Download the app?for iOS today!
