The Rain Gauge Network is a group of dedicated volunteers that record precipitation on a daily basis throughout the month. The reports are sent to the State Climatology office in St. Paul and the statistics become part of the statewide precipitation archive. Their efforts are an important public service and are appreciated by the SWCD and the State Climatology office. The rain season is from April through October and a few volunteers read all year and record snowfall as well.
If you’re interested in participating in the program, please contact Holly Kalbus from our office.
