Be sure to report each day, even if you received no rain. Zeros are important information when we look at rainfall distribution.
Friday February 27, 2015: Another cold front will move into Arizona Saturday bringing rain to the lower elevations and southwest deserts, and snow above 5500 feet or so. Once the storm arrives in Arizona it is expected to move slowly, hanging around through Monday, with precipitation amounts around Phoenix up to 1.00" or 1.25" and a little more in the higher elevations north and east of Phoenix. Temperatures will be colder than average, and by Tuesday another low pressure system is expected to move in.
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.
