VOLUNTEERS NEEDED TO HELP MEASURE PRECIPITATION ALONG COLORADO’S FRONT RANGE

Did it rain at your house today?  Summer rainfall in Colorado tends to be spotty, with significant rain in one part of town, and little or none just a short distance away.  We'd like your help in documenting these patterns!

CoCoRaHS (The Community Collaborative Rain, Hail and Snow Network), CSU’s Colorado grown citizen rainfall network is looking for volunteers along the Front Range to measure precipitation in their own backyards and report their observations via the Internet (www.cocorahs.org). It’s fun and easy and only takes five minutes a day! With over 10,000 volunteers reporting every day in every state, CoCoRaHS measurements are being used for important daily and long-term decision-making on drought and water supply for agricultural, recreation, utility providers, resource managers, teachers, scientists and homeowners. Organizations like the National Weather Service use CoCoRaHS data on a daily basis across the county.
