Weather monitoring tools for amateur meteorologists

1 min read

Monitoring your rainfall (as well as snow and hail) can help you decide when to plant your garden, how much to water, and when to prepare for basement flooding. This all-weather gauge features a calibrated inner measuring tube within an outer cylinder, which collects up to an inch of rain with accuracy to 1/100th of an inch. Decant additional amounts collected in the outer cylinder into the inner tube, and repeat as needed to complete your calculations. Consider making your data available to the National Weather Service through CoCoRaHS (Community Collaborative Rain, Hail & Snow Network), and increase understanding of weather patterns.
