CoCoRaHS Snow Spotter Training Classes Scheduled

Staff from the Riverton National Weather Service office will be conducting CoCoRaHS training around western and central Wyoming this fall and winter.  The one and a half hour class is free of charge and open to anyone with an interest in reporting precipitation and snow amounts year round.  All course materials are provided to the volunteers.

Trained observers will be asked to provide precipitation, snowfall, and hail reports in support of the Community Collaborative Rain, Hail and Snow Network, or CoCoRaHS.  The NWS and other governmental agencies utilize CoCoRaHS as a central location to obtain quality precipitation reports.  The daily reports are provided by trained volunteers who report using the Internet.  The CoCoRaHS network is a fun way to participate in meteorological science and to provide quality data to a wide variety of agencies and individuals.  The network, which originated at the Colorado Climate Center at Colorado State University , has quickly spread to neighboring states.  Some of the measurement tools are provided free of charge by CoCoRaHS, the USDA Farm Service Agency, and the NWS.
