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.
Sunday 11-24-2013: The strong low pressure system that moved through Arizona Thursday night through Sunday tapped into subtropical moisture to bring numerous daily rainfall records to the state. On Thursday two new records were set at Ehrenburg and Yuma, while 25 new daily rainfall records were set on Friday the 22nd, including a snowfall record at Flagstaff. Organ Pipe Cactus National Monument set a new record of 1.98", Gila Bend had 1.92", Punkin Center had 1.78", and Wittman had 1.70" Sky Harbor in Phoenix had 1.60". Most of the previous records were set in 2004 or 1967. The storm brought 1.50 to 3.00" to the Phoenix metropolitan area Thursday through Saturday, with the east side of the valley receiving the most rainfall. The storm moved very slowly so the rainfall was light to moderate through the weekend. This slow movement brought significant totals., but no intense rainfall and very little flooding. Central and southern Arizona received the majority of the precipitation. To see the NWS summary of the storm in Phoenix, use this link: http://www.wrh.noaa.gov/psr/pns/2013/November/rain_1123_2013.php 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.
