CoCoRaHS Maine kicked off in the Pine State on August 1, 2009.  Help us measure precipitation from Kittery Point to Aroostook County as we learn about this wonderful resource that falls from the sky. 

Join CoCoRaHS.


If you wish to notify the National Weather Service of severe weather in your area please file a severe weather report online at NWS Severe Weather Report.
