The National Weather Service took to Twitter on Saturday and Sunday to call for volunteers to help with rain, snow and hail measurement tracking around Colorado for the Community Collaborative Rain, Hail and Snow Network. The nonprofit volunteers measure and report precipitation, which the National Weather Service uses for data collection. For more information, go to cocorahs.org.
Here’s a map of last night’s snowfall. Would you like to help us make maps like this? @CoCoRaHS is a network of volunteers that take rain, snow, and hail measurements. We’d like more data!
