Rainfall this week

By Carolyn B. Edwards BCC Staff Writer

Rainfall reported by volunteers on the CoCoRaHS network in Bandera County for last weekend showed totals ranging from a trace to over three inches.

Rain began falling in the county Friday, Sept. 28, and continued through Monday morning, Oct. 1.

Heaviest rainfall was measured on Saturday. A volunteer northwest of Highway 46 on the Kendall County boundary line reported the highest total of 3.15 inches. Near Pipe Creek, another gauge collected 2.73 inches. On the west end of the county, near Highway 187 and FM 337, 1.18 inches was measured.

Most gauges collected at least a trace of rainfall across the county on Friday, and again on Sunday.

CoCoRaHS, Community Collaborative Rain, Hail & Snow Network, is a nationwide opportunity for volunteers to input precipitation data to be used for natural resource, education and research applications.

Volunteers are trained to use low-cost measurement tools and how to upload the data they collect to an interactive website. Search for CoCoRaHS network to learn how to become a volunteer.
