The Lake Charles Program
The cooperative program at NWS Lake Charles is responsible for an average of 70 precipitation/temperature observing sites, six of which are Fischer-Porter sites and an additional 17 river gaging sites across Southwest Louisiana and Southeast Texas. The program area covers 16 parishes in Louisiana and 6 counties in East Texas. Recruiting new observers for that area.
The Public Service staff ensures that all reports, which include B-91s and B-92s, and the Fischer-Porter tapes are received and that the compiled data is sent to the National Climatic Data Center (NCDC) and the Southern Regional Climate Center at LSU prior to the 15th of each month.

Notes to our observers
National Weather Service Headquarters has developed a Cooperative Observer Homepage with plenty of interesting information.
Time to prepare your Fischer-Porters for warm weather. Beginning April 1, add one quart oil to collectors. If running low, give us a call and we will re-supply you.
B-91 Forms - Make sure your header blocks are filled out correctly and the form is signed at the end of the month. Make sure precipitation is entered in the proper column. Neatness is a must.
