At 17, Scott Pecoriello has built a reputation with an app that Connecticut residents can turn to for important information.

The brainchild of the high school junior, who has a passion for weather research, is Know Snow, which predicts school delays and closings in Fairfield County three to four days before a storm with 90 percent accuracy.

Pecoriello began building the app last October and finished in December. One of his most difficult tasks was getting Know Snow into the Apple store. Now that it's there, it has about 800 users and is available for free on Android and iOS.
