Citizen Science Project: How Much Rain Fell in Your Backyard?

The Community Collaborative Rain, Hail and Snow Network (CoCoRaHS) is a network of volunteers working together to measure precipitation across the nation. Volunteers use high quality rain gauges and even “hail pads” to study hail storms. Volunteers post their daily observations on the CoCoRaHS web site. Observations are immediately available on maps and reports for the public to view. Hope you will get your classroom or family involved!
