NOAA (National Oceanic & Atmospheric Admin) is looking for volunteers to participate for at least one year in the Community Collaborative Rain, Hail, and Snow network. This was established in 2007 to obtain a better understanding of local weather and climate patterns by taking daily weather observations using a simple low cost rain guage. Free rain gauges will be supplied to interested persons. Contact David Glenn at 252-223-5737 or firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to participate or have more questions. Information is also available at www.cocorahs.org.
