Weather Enthusiasts Wanted

National Weather Service in Indianapolis seeks Weather Enthusiasts

Do you have an enthusiasm for watching and reporting weather conditions and a desire to learn more about how weather can effect and impact our lives? If on about this new volunteer opportunity. 

   The CoCoRaHS Network has come to Indiana! What is it? Well, CoCoRaHS is more than just a catchy name; it stands for Community Collaborative Rain, Hail, and Snow network. CoCoRaHS is one of the most exciting and fastest growing endeavors across the country! It involves volunteers of all ages, young and old and everywhere in between.

 The network is made of volunteers who want to study the fascinating and complex patterns of rain, hail, and snow in the Midwest . We need many volunteers to accurately measure and describe rain and snowfall patterns  on a daily basis. The data collected will benefit countless agencies and organizations within the fields of agriculture, public safety, and scientific research.

People who are interested in participating in the Indiana CoCoRaHS Expansion will be eligible to receive a free rain gauge for their participation in the network.

Upcoming training sessions include:

Tuesday, May 9 7:00 PM Indiana State University Climate Lab, Terre Haute, Indiana

Thursday May 18 7:00 PM Elkhart County Extension Office, Goshen, Indiana
