The fine folks at CoCoRaHS posted this map showing counties across the country that had only one or no precipitation observers. I am sad to see so many counties in Georgia that don’t have any observers, not even at extension offices. South Carolina, North Carolina, and Florida are doing a much better job of getting observers, although Georgia is handicapped by having so many counties compared to other states. I would love to see more counties in GA and AL stepping up and finding observers to add to the CoCoRaHS network. More observations lead to better depiction of droughts and helps the National Weather Service finetune their radar-derived precipitation maps too. You can get more information at, including links to vendors who sell the official gauges at a discount. Or contact me for more information. If you are already an observer like I am, THANK YOU for your service!
