Report daily weather observations using a simple low-cost rain gauge.
Community Collaborative Rain, Hail, and Snow network or CoCoRaHS (pronounced KO-ko-ross) was established in North Carolina in 2007 to obtain a better understanding of local weather and climate patterns by taking daily weather observations using a simple low-cost rain gauge.
How does one become a CoCoRaHS observer? Go to the CoCoRaHS website above and click on the “Join CoCoRaHS” emblem on the upper right side of the main website. After registering, take the simple online training, order your 4 inch rain gauge and start reporting!
By using low-cost measurement tools, stressing training and education, and utilizing an interactive Web-site, our aim is to provide the highest quality data for natural resource, education and research applications. The only requirements to join are an enthusiasm for watching and reporting weather conditions and a desire to learn more about how weather can affect and impact our lives.
Our Web page provides the ability for our observers to see their observations mapped out in “real time”, as well as providing a wealth of information for our data users. www.cocorahs.org
Complimentary training is provided to help you become an effective weather observer. Please check out your state page above (by clicking on your state) for a list of current training sessions in your local area. If none are taking place at the current time, watch our “Training Slide Shows“ and read our on-line training information. https://goo.gl/alDwvZ
