How to Easily Track Snowfall #MySnowCast
Last year’s winter here is New England was enough to make me want to move as far south as I could possibly get. Things were smooth sailing in November and even December. We thought we were in the clear for snow and then January came and we got slammed! We had so much snow with the new year that is seemingly snowed all the way through April. Every snowfall record was broken or exceeded. There was a mix of Nor’ Easters, blizzards, snow showers, and snow flurries every. single. week!
I got to the point where I didn’t even count on the local weather because sometimes they were just so off. I can honestly say I was not mentally prepared for last year’s snow and wintery conditions. I vowed that this year I would be more proactive this winter, and would be prepared for power outages, roofing issues, and storm tracking. One of the easiest ways to keep a good eye on snow is the SnowCast App for iOS systems.
Unlike the traditional weather apps, SnowCast has active, color-coded radar which shows where the snow is falling in your area. This week has been freakishly warm here in southern New England so there is no snow currently in our area, but the way our weather is, that could change rather quickly!
As a parent, I find the SnowCast App to be perfect for my household because I honestly do not always watch the news. My life is so busy that I miss the nightly news and our local stations do not always have a live radar for weather. SnowCast was just $2.99 and I downloaded it right onto my iPad. It was super quick to install, and is really clean and easy to navigate.
This app pinpoints your targeted area (with permission), and also shows where the snow is actively falling in your generalized region. Right now, it looks like Maine and some parts of Vermont are getting lighter snow showers, but that is no surprise! They are always get plenty of white stuff come winter time!
With SnowCast you can get targeted snowfall totals in real time through the next 6 hours, or within 48 hours, in 6 hour increments. You also will get NOAA winter weather advisories so you can be prepared for parking bans, cancellations, and possible power outages.
Since my kids had more than 6 snow days last year, this app will really come in handy for planning for snow days, and re-working my errand and gym schedules if need be due to snow. I also love that it helps determine when I should plow my driveway, and when the snow storms or flurries will start.
I cannot begin to explain how helpful this is to me because I do not get in a second of TV time during the weekdays and often depend on weather hearsay from others. Admittedly, I am also not a big snow driver and like to wait out the storms in the comfort of my own home.
If you live in a snowy region, the SnowCast App is for you! At just $2.99, it can provide you with invaluable peace of mind this winter season! It is available for iOS systems like iPhones and iPads. Download the app TODAY!
