  • Best App so far for this too snowy Midwest winter

    by felinely

    Yet again we are in the middle of another Midwest snowstorm. This has been the most accurate for snow prediction out of many weather apps. Too bad that I've had to use it almost daily since 6 Dec.

  • Unique App

    by Zen men

    Accurate, easy to use and provides a unique interface to view all relevant details pertaining to a snow event. No complaints.

  • great app!!

    by Silky jazz

    I really like this app. Very accurate, no unnecessary ornaments but lots of solid info. The learning curve is moderate, and the FAQ is comprehensive. Really great.

  • Great App

    Finally, an App that estimates snow predictions.

  • Most accurate snowfall predictions

    by CrimsonEcon

    I use both the Weather Channel and Accuweather apps and like them both for overall weather information and forecasts. But this app, which is based on NOAA forecasts, has proven to be the most accurate this winter in New England when the one thing I want to know is how much snow we'll be receiving in my neighborhood over the next 6-24 hours. It's been great at telling me how much snow I'll be dealing with.

    Amazing app! Totals are usually very accurate, updates often if needed.

  • This App is great

    by ColoradoBen

    Not only does the App work well, but the data shared us the most reliable I've used. Really depend on this in WY and CO in backcountry areas.

  • Very good but interface needs streamlining

    by Ascegan

    Excellent weather data but app lacks landscape mode, whichever would make map manipulation easier. Interface selecting map points takes a few steps, and many options are complicated to navigate.

  • Inaccurate for me...

    by Michael630

    For me it was totally inaccurate. Said to expect 3inches of snow on the most recent storm. Got 5.5inches. So not even close.

    by Brisco 1983

    This app is amazing! I work outside and use these apps on a daily basis. There is no need to watch the weather channel. With this app I can let my coworkers know what is coming and approximately how long it will last. NOAA has done a great job with this app.
