Be sure to report each day, even if you received no rain. Zeros are important information when we look at rainfall distribution.

The android app for CoCoRaHS is working well and the iPhone app will be available very soon.
Thursday 2-27-2014: March Madness - CoCoRaHS annual recruiting drive starts Saturday. That is just in time for our first good rainfall of the year. This should be a statewide storm, with an inch or more in many places, and snow at the higher elevations. That pesky high pressure that has made our weather so warm and dry is being forced out by two low pressure systems. That's good news for our water resource managers, even if it puts a bit of a damper on the spring training activities this weekend. Temperatures will come back up next week after these two storm systems pass through. Encourage your friends and family to become CoCoRaHS observers during the month of March. We don't usually do well recruiting new observers in March as we don't tend to have that much precipitation this time of year. But if they become new observers now, they will be all set when the monsoon starts in late June.
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.
