Welcome to Mississippi CoCoRaHS!

Mississippi is a member of CoCoRaHS, and is looking for weather observers. It's easy to join.  Just follow the instructions below. By joining, you can become part of a growing community of people interested in weather, and also provide a great service to scientists, forecasters and neighbors interested in the daily patterns of rainfall.

How do I join?
All you need to do is click on Join CoCoRaHS, fill out the application, view the training slide show/animations and purchase a rain gauge.  

Do I need to purchase a rain gauge?
Yes. For the quality of the data reported to be consistent, everyone must use the same rain gauge. You can purchase a rain gauge from various vendors.

What do I need to do?
Once you join and set up your rain gauge, you will log in to this website once a day or as often as you are able to report the amount of rain in the rain gauge. Days without any rain are also important!

Who can I contact if I have questions?
You may contact the state coordinator or one of the regional or co-coordinators. Click on "State Coordinators" on the State Menu to the left to find out who your regional or local coordinators are.  For general questions, you may contact:
    Mike Brown    
    Office of the Mississippi State Climatologist
    Mississippi State University
    662 325-3915

Can I do anything else to help ?
Sure!  We are looking for volunteers at the county level to serve as local coordinators.  Email one of the state or regional coordinators if you are interested.
