    Wish there was a way to predict when a “snow day” will occur? phone apps

    Three northern Illinois teenagers have created a phone app that helps do just that and it’s been getting some buzz.

    Calvin Breseman, Tanishq Dubey and Gustavo Farias are seniors at prairie ridge high school in crystal lake. They created the snow day calculator.

    The (DeKalb) Daily Chronicle reported Monday that the cellphone application has been downloaded more than 1,000 times in a week nationwide.

    Breseman tells the newspaper that everyone loves a snow day, so they came up with an idea for an algorithm and decided to make the free app. It’s been published by Boreas applications.

    The app gives the user the chance of snow based on location. The students say they’re working on improvements.
