CoCoRaHS Looking For New Volunteers

Posted:

CoCoRaHS or Community Collaborative Rain, Hail and Snow Network is looking for new volunteers to measure precipitation. It is easy to join! All you have to do is sign up, purchase a rain gauge from CoCoRaHS, and view the online training video and slides. You can find that information on the website www.cocorahs.org

Observations only take a few minutes of your time everyday. WAND is a CoCoRaHS reporting site. WAND-TV Chief Meteorologist JC Fultz says it only take him about 10 minutes from start to finish. 

This is a nation wide organization who's observers data is used by the National Weather Service and hydrologists. It is important to have as much data as possible because rain totals can vary widely, even in just one county or city.
