Rain Monitoring

The The Resource Conservation District of Tehama County coordinates a dedicated county-wide network of volunteer rain monitors who report daily precipitation measurements through the Community Collaborative Rain, Hail, and Snow Network (CoCoRaHS), a nonprofit, community based network of precipitation monitors from across the United States. For more information about CoCoRaHS, please visit their website or download the CoCoRaHS brochure.


Are you an armchair meteorologist? A constant weather watcher? We need your help!
The Tehama County RCD is currently looking for new volunteer rain monitors. We especially need folks who live in the Cottonwood area of Tehama County. If you have an interest in the weather and have 5 minutes each day, consider becoming a volunteer rain monitor. The Tehama County RCD provides monitors with the training and equipment to get started.
For more information on the Volunteer Rain Monitoring Program or to become a volunteer, please contact Brin Greer, Watershed Coordinator.
