Weather Enthusiasts Wanted!

The National Weather Service in Indianapolis Wants Volunteers to Help Study Storms

Volunteers are wanted to join the CoCoRaHS network in Indiana! Anyone can participate;  old, young, and anywhere in between. The only requirement is a desire to learn more about how the weather impacts our daily lives.

The project website is located at

The CoCoRaHS network is a unique, non-profit community based network of volunteer observers who measure and record daily amounts of precipitation (rain, hail, and snow). The high quality data collected by our volunteers will help weather forecasters and resource managers better understand the highly variable patterns that make up Indiana’s weather. Qualified observers will be eligible to receive a free rain gauge for use in the project.

CoCoRaHS in Indiana is a collaborative effort between the National Weather Service - Indianapolis and the Indiana State Climate Office at Purdue University.

Scheduled training sessions in the area include February 15 in Greenfield, Indiana. For more information please contact or visit the project website. An updated listing of training sessions is posted there.
