Rhode Island Wins the 2020 CoCoRaHS Cup for "Per Capita" Recruiting!

Welcome to the 41 new observers (and more in April) who joined CoCoRaHS. 
For the first time, the "CoCoRaHS Cup" is coming to New England! Once the
current situation eases, we hope to showcase the Cup throughout Rhode Island
and neighboring states. Stay tuned!

Rhode Island became the 30th state to join CoCoRaHS on April 1, 2008
(And the first state to join in New England!)

One small measurement to make.
One giant impact that measurement makes upon the millions that depend upon water.


We encourage anyone who has an interest in the weather, a desire to learn more about weather and
climate, and enthusiasm to report daily observations to Join CoCoRaHS.
 Define your climate!
