Spring is getting closer, however those of us in the Midwest still have the specter of snow all the way through April. Over the last couple of weeks I have been playing around with a new app called SnowCast and really appreciate some of the ways it can help you plan and also make the best of a cold & snowy situation.
As a family, we like to go outside and have some fun. In the winter months, this includes sled riding, skiing, making a snowman and even games of snow soccer. Now with the SnowCast app, we have a snow estimator which is able to give us a better idea of exactly how much snow we will get for our exact location.
The weather channels are great, but they cover a whole area, we all really just want to know how much snow our neighborhood will get. This will can impact our plans greatly and we could get just an inch or 2 while a city 10 miles away gets 6 inches, that’s a big difference and the TV weather people don’t have time to tell snow fall for your city specifically . . . but SnowCast can.
When using SnowCast, you are able to know how much snow will fall in your location. You are able to see present snow fall – Now and within the next 6 hours. Also, you can see future snow fall over the next 48 hours in 6 hour increments.
There are so many things that knowing the snowfall amounts for your specific area will be beneficial for;
- Will there be a snow day tomorrow?
- Can we go skiing?
- Do I need to leave early for work?
- Should I take that longer drive now or tomorrow?
- Do I shovel the driveway now or wait a couple of hours?
So many ways SnowCast is beneficial as a snow estimator!
All of this knowledge is accessible in an easy to use app, the interface is nice and clean, easy to understand and set up. The most complex thing is setting your address, which all you have to do is allow your iOS device to access your location. Do this and you are off to the races.
SnowCast uses NOAA winter weather warnings and advisories along with fast loading and accurate radar to help keep you ahead of the curve when it comes to snowy days in your area. You also have the ability to set the app up to provide you with notifications which you can select – do you want to know when more than 1” of snow is coming?
Or would you prefer to be notified about 2”, 5” or 8”+. Or maybe all of the above.
Will you get a ton of snow?
or are you free of snow and able to keep that shovel in the garage?
Now with SnowCast, there is no more wondering if the snow will throw a wrench into your weekend plans, you will be able to plan better and make better, safer decisions.
SnowCast is available for your iPhone and iPad, Download the app for yourself.
So now when life gives you snow, go make a snowman . . . thanks to SnowCast.
