Join CoCoRaHS: A Network of Volunteer Weather Observers!

CoCoRaHs stands for the Community Collaborative Rain, Hail and Snow Network – a network of volunteer “weather observers” who measure and map precipitation data – in the form of Rain, Hail & Snow – from their own back yards each day. As a member, you will check & measure the precipitation that fell into your Rain Gauge and report your findings online at the website. If you are on-the-go or in the field, iPhone or Android users can download the free app to their mobile devices.

All Submissions & Data are publically available on the website, and also on an Interactive MAP. Environment Canada both supports and utilizes the data which is filtered down to a host of End Users, like Flood & Drought Forecasters, Meteorologists, Farmers, Conservation, Hydrologists, and Emergency Response Managers … just to name a few. Read the full article here.
