“We are located in northern Vermont, and in my experience, the Weather Channel app gives us the most accurate, reliable radar and forecasting for snow conditions in our area.”

“We have been using weather services and apps now for 15-plus years, primarily Accuweather. Our service area sits anywhere from 1 to 20 miles east of Lake Michigan, so the majority of our events are lake-effect storms. It’s not easy to predict lake-effect (snow), which is why we rely so heavily on not only Accuweather but other weather services as well to help us make an educated guess on when it’s time to go to work. They provide multiple radars, hourly updates and send us updates on any incoming events.”

“I use the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration website. It can tell me 48 hours before a storm what to expect. It’ll project that we’ll get 2 inches per hour in each area that I serve. I use the site to get crews to the areas expected to receive the most snow before the first flakes fall. We’re spread out over a wide area, so it helps to understand that somewhere 30 miles north might be getting twice as much snow as the guy 30 miles east of us.”
