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.

Chevy Chase complained on The Rosie O'Donnell Show (1996) that when filming in Edmonton Alberta, Canada, it was incredibly cold outside. In fact, the temperature throughout filming was +1C (34F) or higher everyday. Effects artists actually had to *make* snow for the shooting. Then mayor of Edmonton, Bill Smith, sent a letter to Rosie O'Donnell telling the truth of the matter, which she read on air and laughed off - to the annoyance of most Edmontonians. See more »
Natalie says that "we've never had two [snow days] in a row before!" In upstate New York, it is rare not to have two snow days in a row. See more »

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.
