A Great Resource Any Time of Year

There is a network of volunteer weather watchers called CoCoRAHS.  We (I'm weather station Wichita 7.1 Northeast) report every morning around 7am local time.  Our rain gauges are of a type approved by the National Weather Service.

The primary web site is:  http://www.cocorahs.org

If you, for example, wanted to see the morning snow depths in Kansas, you would go here:  www.cocorahs.org/Maps/ViewMap.aspx?state=usa  and you would see that as much as five inches has accumulated in Waubaunsee County (click to enlarge).

This data source is available throughout the United States.
