App DescriptionEvery winter, students and parents wonder, Will there be school or will it be cancelled because of the snow? and Do I need to change my work schedule or arrange for childcare, or will we have school? The new Snow Days application from AccuWeather makes it easier to predict the likelihood of winter-weather related school cancellations in your location from anywhere at any time!
The application provides an accurate and localized forecast with a five-point scale ranging from very likely to very unlikely that school in your area will be cancelled due to winter weather:
Five-day forecast includes Saturdays and Sundays for guidance in planning special enrichment activities
Accurate forecast information updated every hour for all global locations
Detailed forecasts include current temperatures, chance of precipitation, and predicted amounts of precipitation
Colorful snowman format that makes for a fun and easy-to-use interface
Download Snow Days for free and check the probability of school closing in your area at any time and from any location!
The application takes into account a variety of winter weather events that may play a role in the decision whether to cancel school, including snow, ice, and extreme cold. It considers not only the actual weather, but its likely impact on road and travel conditions. It also takes into account local climatology. For example, an inch of snow in northern Florida may lead to school cancellation, while it will likely take a much greater snow accumulation to cancel school in the Great Lakes snow belts.
The Snow Days Forecast is not intended as a replacement for official school closings and delay notices, which come directly from your school district. It should never be used as a reason not to prepare to go to school or postpone doing school work.
