Director of the National Weather Service, retired Brig. General David L. Johnson said, “Cooperative observers are the bedrock of weather data collection and analysis. Satellites, high-speed computers, mathematical models and other technological breakthroughs have brought great benefits to the nation in terms of better forecast and warnings. But with out the century-long accumulation of accurate weather observations taken by volunteer observers, scientists could not begin to adequately describe the climate of the United States.
