Several hundred weather watchers in Nebraska.
If you are willing to spend a few minutes each day recording measurements of precipitation using backyard gauges,
which will be provided by your local Natural Resources District and a grant from the
Nebraska Environmental Trust
leaders want YOU
The Nebraska Natural Resources Districts,
Nebraska Department of Natural Resources
and other water-focused organizations, will analyze and document data gathered by volunteers.
The data will provide important daily decision-making information for agriculture, industry,
home water use, utility providers, insurance companies, resource managers, and educators.
Precipitation reports by volunteers will be transmitted via the Internet to the Nebraska Department
of Natural Resources each day. Climate analysists will process the data and prepare detailed maps
showing rainfall patterns. Scientists and water managers will study these maps to learn how storms
develop and move across the region and to make water-use decisions.
NeRAIN information will be updated daily and available for public access on this website.
