Rainfall Information - Correct Link

Postby kape123 » Wed Dec 28, 2011 5:08 pm

I was searching weather.gov for pH and rainfal in inches everyday for cities in United States. I could not find the correct link over there. Any ideas on where I can find the correct link for this info.

Hi,

This sounds like an interesting topic for a science fair project. Rainfall records are kept by the National Weather Service, but it is a little challenging to find the data and the information doesn’t appear to be organized in an easily usable format. Try doing a Google search for “ national weather service archives.” and then search for rainfall records. Here’s an example of records by month for one city:

http://www.erh.noaa.gov/buf/climate/buf_pcpn00s.php

I did not see any recent data for pH.
