What's the Weather in Your Backyard?
When you hear the rainfall amount from the official gage, have you ever said,
"That's not what I got!"
Beginning in September, the Binghamton National Weather Service rain and snow spotter network,
covering central New York, will merge with the Community Collaborative Rain, Hail,
and Snow Network or CoCoRaHS.
You can let us know how much precipitation has
fallen in your backyard by joining this program. Data you provide, on a volunteer basis, will help meteorologists,
researchers, the media, and others see and study the variability of precipitation across New York. The accumulated
precipitation data will be available to anyone using the web. Also, if you are a resident of northeast Pennsylvania,
you are welcome to join that state's network at any time!
Please visit the CoCoRaHS web site at: www.cocorahs.org to learn more about
the program. We are excited about joining forces with 20 other states to help be a part of creating a denser climate
monitoring network across the country.
Thank you for your interest in CoCoRaHS - Because Every Drop Counts!
