Planning my day with SnowCast

Maybe it has to do with my background in engineering, but I really enjoy planning things! When I wake up in the morning, I love to immediately take out my calendar, along with a cup of coffee, and figure out which errands I need to accomplish that day. I usually set aside a few hours in the morning to take care of blog-related duties: responding to emails, writing posts, being active on social media, etc. After that, I usually like to plan an outing with my daughters! We might head to the park, go to the mall, meet some friends at a play gym, etc. However, Winter weather can definitely be unpredictable and that’s why I’m loving the SnowCast app! It lets me see exactly how much snowfall my area will receive over the next few hours or days! Download the app here to get snowfall totals for your area! #MySnowCast

Just yesterday, after finishing some blog-related tasks, I wanted to invite some of my daughter’s friends over for a play date in our backyard. I was about to text my friend to schedule this play date, but I wasn’t sure whether the weather would cooperate. So I quickly checked the SnowCast app.

Although it is cold outside during this time of year, we have a huge play set in the backyard and the kids really enjoy running around and playing out there, even if it’s for only 15 minutes at a time! I’m so glad I checked the app, because it showed that we were going to get some snow over the next 3 hours!

I really love how I can check the total snowfall over different time periods! I can check the total snowfall over the next 48 hours in 6-hour increments! And the app was so simple to install and use. All I needed to do was download the app from the App Store, install it on my phone and enter in my location! The app loaded the current data for my local area very quickly! Here is how much snow my area was going to receive over the next 44 hours! Isn’t this such a neat app?! I love how easy and intuitive the user interface is! Download the app here and check it out today!

After seeing how much snow my area was predicted to receive, I decided that a play date in our backyard was not a good idea! We decided to meet our friends at a local mall, where we can all stay indoors- warm & dry! When we got back home from the mall, there was definitely some snow on the ground- just like the app predicted!

Our backyard, although pretty with snow on the lawn, was not the perfect place for a play date! Thanks to the SnowCast app, I will always know what to expect when it comes to snowfall!

So, be sure to check out the SnowCast app for iOS and you’ll never be caught off guard by Winter weather again! Find out how many inches of snow your area will receive! Here are some other ways I’ve been thinking of using the app to better plan my days!

  • Should my husband shovel the sidewalk tonight or wait until the morning?
  • Is today a good day to go for a jog around the neighborhood, or will excessive snowfall make that impossible?
  • Will school be cancelled tomorrow due to snow accumulation?
  • Can we head to the park tomorrow, or will there be too much snow?

I really love that you can even set a notification to have the phone let you know if your area will receive an excessive amount of snow! And the SnowCast app features NOAA winter weather warnings and advisories, so you can rest assured that the data is accurate!

Download the app here to keep track of the expected snowfall in your area! Now, tell me: Have you tried the SnowCast app? Would you like to be able to predict the amount of snowfall in your area so you can better plan your days?!
