The CoCoRaHS network is looking for enthusiastic volunteers to report rainfall, snowfall
and hail information. Observers can be individuals, who take readings in their backyard, at schools,
their places of work, at golf courses and local farmers. The rainfall measurements are made using
high quality 4 inch rain gauges. The information is used by a wide variety of organizations such
as: The National Weather Service; Television Meteorologist; Farmers; Hydrologist; Researchers;
Emergency Managers; Water Resource Managers and many others. Become a piece of the meteorological
puzzle and join volunteers from the United State and Canada. The CoCoRaHS Program is striving to
have 30,000-40,000 volunteer observers by the end of 2013. It's easy to join and only takes
about 5 minutes a day, so become an observer it's a wonderful to help your community and learn
