Be sure to report each day, even if you received no rain. Zeros are important information when we look at rainfall distribution.
Please be advised that the android app for CoCoRaHS is not completely stable. It still needs some work. As soon as it is stable we will let you know.
There was more thunderstorm activity today across the northern and central parts of the state, particularly at the higher elevations along the Mogollon Rim, and even over La Paz County in western Arizona. Rain fell over the higher elevations, while the central deserts had sprinkles or virga. Strong outflow winds from these storms were reported across central Arizona, and the Phoenix area. The low pressure will continue moving over New Mexico Saturday, bringing more chances of showers Saturday. As the low moves out and high pressure moves in, warming will continue into next week.
If you know someone in the Rainlog network, who uses the 4" rain gauge, encourage them to join the CoCoRaHS network as well. We can always use more observers and it only takes a few extra moments to report their values to both networks. Currently the National Weather Service ingests the CoCoRaHS observer data and uses our values in local reports.
