(KFVS) -

'Tis the season for snow days.

Good news for your student: a web app now takes some of the guessing out of predicting if snow will cancel class.

Kids can now go online to see what the odds are using SnowDayCalculator.com.

The web app uses data from weather.gov to make the prediction.

Once you log online, all you have to do is type in your zip code, enter how many snow days your school has and and select what type of school your kid attends.

The ultimate goal: the prediction to be about 87 to 99 percent.

That means there is a really good chance snow will cancel class.

People on Twitter say this site hasn't let them down.

There is also a mobile app.
