After an unseasonably nice September with pleasant skies, the rain has arrived just in time to remind locals that they live in the Pacific Northwest.
As the wet season picks up, the Office of the Washington State Climatologist at the University of Washington is seeking rainfall observers to join more than 300 volunteers across the state that measure rainfall totals through the Community Collaborative Rain, Hail & Snow Network, more commonly called CoCoRaHS.
CoCoRaHS is a grassroots volunteer network of backyard weather observers who work together to map and measure precipitation in their local communities.
“Their reports are useful for weather forecasters, climatologists, city utilities, hydrologists, and researchers, among others,” said Karin Bumbaco, the Washington state CoCoRaHS coordinator.
