Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
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
Step 2: Websites
when trying to get a good feel for the amount of snow I like to look at weather.com and at the radar maps. I like to go to different sites and see what the variation is on accumulation. I like to use local news stations websites for checking if school is closed.
Step 3: Predicting
Now you have your data you need to conclude if their are any chance of a snow day. I've created a checklist so you can gauge your chances. Remember this instructable is written for people in north eastern united states.Depending where you live changes the checklist.
Are you getting more than 4 inches of snow?
Is the storm supposed to hit in the early morning so the county won't be able to get the roads cleaned?
Is the chance of precipitation high?
Is their supposed to be strong wind?
Step 4: Closing
