CoCoRaHS March Madness competition

General News

 

Citizen Science Program needs your help observing the weather!

 
Do you ever wonder how much rainfall you received from a recent thunderstorm? How about snowfall during a winter storm? If so, a new volunteer weather observing program needs your help! The Community Collaborative Rain, Hail, and Snow network, or CoCoRaHS, is looking for new volunteers across North Carolina. The grassroots effort is part of a growing national network of home-based and amateur rain spotters with a goal of providing a high density precipitation network that will supplement existing observations.
 
CoCoRaHS came about as a result of a devastating flash flood that hit Fort Collins, Colorado, in July 1997. A local severe thunderstorm dumped over a foot of rain in several hours while other portions of the city had only modest rainfall. The ensuing flood caught many by surprise and caused $200 million in damages. CoCoRaHS was born in 1998 with the intent of doing a better job of mapping and reporting intense storms. As more volunteers participated, rain, hail, and snow maps were produced for every storm showing fascinating local patterns that were of great interest to scientists and the public. Recently, drought reporting has also become an important observation within the CoCoRaHS program across the nation. In fact, drought observations from CoCoRaHS are now being included in the National Integrated Drought Information System. (click "Read more" below)

Spring storm season

General News

 Spring storm season is upon us . How would you communicate if a strong storm takes out your antenneas or power ? I practiced that Monday due to a power company outage. And when it gets dark it makes it harder. Have a up-to-date check list. Know where it is. Run your generator once a month with a load on it. Use a gas additive to keep it fresh . Extra gas, oil, spark plugs and tools. When the last time you checked the battery or fuse in your volt meter? What are some of your things on your check list?

New WH1080 WX Station KNCWATHA1

General News

Hello  after 15 years of using Peet Brothers weather gear, I had to give up my Ultmeter 2000. I could not justfire the cost of a new replacement head. Almost $290.00!.  So to get my station up and running I put up a new WeatherWise  WH1080 WIRELESS STATION into service. So far so good I'm using Cumulus Sandaysoft software. Its loading up to WX UNDREGROUND in rapid fire mode with NO problems . Instrument package is at 25 feet . Anyway any other folks in ILM Skywarn using this type of gear? Any comments? Take a look at the data set on my Wunderground page station KNCWATHA1 see link below.
