Rhode Island became the 30th state to join CoCoRaHS on April 1, 2008
(And the first state to join in New England!)
One small measurement to make.
One giant impact that measurement makes upon the millions that depend upon water.
We encourage anyone who has an interest in the weather, a desire to learn more about weather and
climate, and enthusiasm to report daily observations to Join CoCoRaHS. Define your climate!
