Be an Angel: NWS seeking weather tracking volunteers
The National Weather Service is looking for volunteers throughout southeastern Connecticut to take part in a nationwide weather observation program.
CoCoRaHS, the Community Collaborative Rain, Hail and Snow network, has been tracking precipitation levels at the hyperlocal level in Connecticut for 10 years. The data collected by local volunteers fills in gaps between official weather stations at area airports to help the NWS more accurately assess drought and flooding potentials.
Interested volunteers can sign up at cocorahs.org, take the training test, and start recording once they’ve purchased their official rain gauge, available on the website for $35.
Be an Angel is a regular feature in the Times for individuals and organizations seeking community assistance. To submit, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
