Frequently asked questions

  • Snow Alerting Service is AccuWeather’s ‘tap on the shoulder’ for you and your business, bringing you the most up-to-date and accurate information regarding upcoming snow events in cities that you care about. This information is delivered via email with the expected start and end time of snow events, total accumulation expected, relevant data about wind and temperature, and also an overview of the weather for the 12 hours following the snow event.

  • You can select up to 5 different cities, and each city will receive one email per day, per each snow event forecasted. For example, if New York City has a snow event forecasted for Monday and Tuesday, you will receive two separate emails. Each email will have the location and expected start time in the subject line to help you quickly find the information most relevant to you.

  • The email is sent once a day at 5 A.M. to the time zone of the selected city, so you may receive emails at different hours.

  • Snow Alerting Service emails are not sent daily. Emails are sent only if there is a snow event forecasted in the next 48 hours that affects one or more of your selected cities. Also, minimum standards must be met to trigger an email: the accumulation must exceed a coating of snow, and the event duration must be equal or more than 3 hours. If those criteria are not met, you will not receive a Snow Alerting Service email.

  • After you sign into your account using the link on the top right of this page, you can manage your personal information and select the cities for which you want to receive the Snow Alerting Service email.

  • If you are having issues with your password, first try to follow the steps after clicking on the “Forgot Password?” link on the sign in page. If you are still not able to sign in, please contact us at
