In this instructable you will learn how to predict a snow day (hopefully).

Step 1: Requirements

Different areas have different requirements for snow days. For most areas in the north east united states your going to have to have these requirements

-snowfall accumulating of 3 inches or more

-the snowfall should hit early in the morning about 4 o clock thats when schools will call the day

-icy conditions

Recently I learned how to Predict snowfall without consulting a computer. You can tell by the amount of times a cricket chirps in a second and dividing it by a certain number. take the barometric pressure reading into consideration and you got the timing of a rain or snow storm. There are also ways using the way cattle stand and the amount of squawking squirrels and other animals do. There is lots of good information in the book &quot;How to Understand and Predict the Weather ebook&quot; you can find it by googling the title or going to <a href="http://www.theWeatherBook.com" rel="nofollow">www.theWeatherBook.com</a>.

yeah i got that snowday... finally. where in Michigan if u dont mind telling are u from?
u from Michigan? i am and even tho we get crap loads of snow i still have not had a snowday yet this year!
Yes I am from Michigan. The snow needs to hit in the early morning when the buses will be out. I'm expecting a snow day tomorrow. Most of Mid Michigan is predicting 6-10 inches of snow.
I got like 12 and a snow day friday XD
fenton btw
yup....we were watching the storm too.....I called it thursday afternoon....we got an additional 4 to 5"....
It's sleet right now. I can't believe this. I live in Grand Ledge, and I'm a freshman. The person who says if there will be a snowday or not has been teasing us with two-hour delays.
snow day today!! (royal oak)
lol, will it predict in Las vegas, i guess not, because in the first time since about 7 years ago, today, we get about 2 inches of snow. Hehehe. still cool though
With the snow removal budgets tight in this economy, it's good to be able to predict with some reliability whether one's area is going to get buried in snow. There's no guarantee that local and state governments are going to make the roads passable anymore. I can usually smell snow in the air within three hours of a really big storm. Also, for some reason when a big low pressure front comes through, I get really sleepy. It's not a reliable indicator for anybody else and not scientific, but I thought I'd mention it.
I read this because I DON'T want a snow day. I know, I'm crazy. but I have exams, and if I have a snow day, I'll have to do 3 exams in one day.
