One thing I have learned from living in snowy states is that winter weather conditions can change fast. The SnowCast app makes it easy to stay on top of the snow forecast. I use it to see exactly what times it will be snowing and when the snow will taper off. The SnowCast app helps me know if I need to plan to wake up early and shovel snow off the driveway, or give myself extra travel time to school and work due to snowy road conditions.
First ski of the 2015-16 season! Park City Mountain Resort
My family lives within minutes of Park City ski resorts, so we get really excited about the possibility of a snowstorm. Fresh snow is the best for skiing! We always check the weather at the ski resort before we go. There could be lots of snowfall going on up in the mountains, even though we have blue skies a few miles away at our house.
We like to wait for the snow to pass and get there right when they open the ski slopes back up for skiing on the fresh powder. The SnowCast app helps us time our ski trips by telling us exactly what time the snow is supposed to stop. We can enjoy perfectly timed ski trips.
There’s nothing complicated about the SnowCast app. Download the app on your iPhone or iPad and it’s ready to go. SnowCast can use your current location settings or you can type in the location you want to see.
The snow report is easy to understand. Use it to find out how much snow will fall in the next 6 hours, 12 hours and 48 hours.
Click on the Radar if you want to see a map view of your location and surrounding areas. I have found the radar feature to be helpful in showing which direction a snow storm is moving, and which areas are receiving the most snowfall.
I like that the SnowCast app gives me NOAA Winter Weather Warnings and Advisories. I have already found this feature useful several times since downloading the app last week. I checked the SnowCast before planning my family’s Thanksgiving trip out of town. It was supposed to snow on Wednesday, and taper off by early Thursday morning. So we decided to wait and drive on Thursday when the roads would for sure be clear.
Download the app to see your winter SnowCast.
Another SnowCast feature I find helpful are clickable links to my state’s DOT road condition reports. I can check weather and road conditions easily within the app. We’re just getting started with winter here in Utah. I am glad I found an app that tells me when, where and how much it is going to snow.
Does it snow where you live? Could the SnowCast app help you plan your daily activities and travel?
