CoCoRaHS

Community Collaborative Rain, Hail and Snow Network

Greg Story will provide a presentation on the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) program – “CoCoRaHS” (“Community Collaborative Rain, Hail and Snow Network”) and how the National Weather Service uses the rainfall data from this important network. CoCoRaHS is a unique, nonprofit grassroots volunteer network made up of people of all ages who measure and map precipitation, be it rain hail or snow.

 

Greg is the North Texas regional coordinator for CoCoRaHS and has been at the Fort Worth forecast center since 1993. His areas of expertise include satellite precipitation estimation and improving quantitative precipitation estimation techniques.  Prior to the National Weather Service, Greg spent the first 14 years of his professional career as a broadcast meteorologist.
