CoCoRaHS County Coordinators Requested

Beginning in September, North Carolina will join the Community Collaborative Rain, Hail, and Snow Network - CoCoRaHS. This new program will help meteorologists, researchers, the media, and others see and study the variability of precipitation across North Carolina. The accumulated precipitation data will be available to anyone using the web.

Local County Volunteer Coordinators are needed now to help grow this network across North Carolina. The main duties of the county coordinators will be to help answer new observer questions, contact new observers to help start reporting, and help with training - although training slides and information are available at the CoCoRaHS web site. Other Volunteer Coordinator duties along with answers to most questions can be found searching through the tabs on the CoCoRaHS main web page.

Please visit the CoCoRaHS web site at: to learn more about the program. Then, contact our office if you would like to signup to be a Volunteer Coordinator for your county in North Carolina. If you would like to be a coordinator or assist a coordinator, you can contact us by sending an email from our main page to We are excited about getting started and I am sure many more will be after the word spreads.

Thanks for your interest in CoCoRaHS - Because Every Drop Counts!
