When an entire town in upstate New York is closed down by an unexpected snowfall, a "snow day" begins when a group of elementary school kids, led by Natalie Brandston, try to ensure that the schools stay closed by stopping a mechanical snowplow driver by trying to hijack his plow truck. Meanwhile, Natalie's big brother Hal is using this day to try to win the affections of Claire Bonner, the most popular girl in his high school, while Hal and Natalie's father Tom, a TV meteorologist, faces off against a rival meteorologist for weather coverage of the day's events.

The news studio where Chevy Chase reports his weather is an actual news studio in Edmonton, Alberta. A local Meteorologist used a similar board for reporting the weather, almost like what Chase acted out. In the distance, you can see the news anchors from Edmonton, who also starred in this movie.

Although I held a grudge against nickelodeon (see my review for "space cases"), I decided to see this movie because of the plot: school getting cancelled on a snow day, and for-O.K. I'll admit it-Chevy Chase. Chevy Chase had a great role as the weather man whering those outfits for the weather channel due to lack of viewers, and I liked the Snow Plow guy.
