Have a rain gauge? Looking to put it to good use? The National Weather Service is looking for weather spotter volunteers and could use your help.
Read about their CoCoRaHS program below.
March is the month when we strive to increase the number of CoCoRaHS volunteer rainfall observers across south Texas.
CoCoRaHS continues to be a premier method for obtaining quality rainfall and storm reports from people like you. The contributions of CoCoRaHS observers has a tremendous impact on meteorological, hydrological and climatological products and services provided by the National Weather Service.
We invite you to join CoCoRaHS and start making a difference today!
The Community Collaborative Rain, Hail and Snow Network (CoCoRaHS)
CoCoRaHS is a unique, non-profit, community-based network of volunteers of all ages and backgrounds working together to measure and map precipitation (rain, hail and snow). By using low-cost measurement tools, stressing training and education, and utilizing an interactive Web-site, the goal is to provide the highest quality data for natural resource, education and research applications. CoCoRaHS operates in most states across the country.
