An expansive early season heat wave will persist through the week bringing record-breaking temperatures across the Southwest through the Southern Plains through the week. Read More >

The Community Collaborative Rain, Hail, and Snow Network, or CoCoRaHS, is a collection of over 24,000 volunteers who measure and report rainfall amounts each day. Many folks also report snowfall, snow depth, and other weather phenomena.

Butler County is the only county in central Kentucky to have never had a CoCoRaHS volunteer.

If you live or work in Butler County, please consider joining CoCoRaHS today. All it takes is a simple plastic rain gauge and a few minutes in the morning to submit your rainfall amount via the CoCoRaHS app or website. Your rain (and snow) information are used to fill in our daily precipitation maps and are employed in climate research. 

For more information, see or feel free to send us an email.

Even if you're not in Butler County, please consider joining this worthy cause. We can always use more data, and there are several counties that currently have no participants in the program.
