VOLUNTEERS NEEDED TO MEASURE PRECIPITATION IN SOUTHEAST WYOMING AND NEBRASKA PANHANDLE

Did it rain at your house today?  Summer rainfall in Southeast Wyoming and the Nebraska Panhandle tends to be more scattered in coverage, with significant rain at one location, and little or none just a few miles away.  We need your assistance in documenting these weather patterns!

CoCoRaHS (The Community Collaborative Rain, Hail and Snow Network), Colorado State University's citizen rainfall network is looking for volunteers to measure precipitation in their own backyards and report their observations via the Internet (www.cocorahs.org). It’s simple and only takes five minutes a day! With over 10,000 volunteers reporting every day in every state, CoCoRaHS measurements are 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.
