Daily Coop Observer Reports

The Cooperative Weather Observer Program is administered by the National Weather Service as a supplemental source of weather data. As part of the program, nearly 12,000 volunteers across the country collect information such as temperature, precipitation amount, soil temperature, evaporation, wind movement, agricultural data, water equivalent of snow on the ground, river stages, lake levels, atmospheric phenomena, and road hazards. The National Weather Service supplies the equipment, and the observers collect the data and relay it to the local NWS office as well as to the National Climatic Data Center in Asheville, NC, where it is permanently archived.
