The state's climatologist is looking for 1,000 weather watchers to help gauge precipitation across Alabama.
Those interested can register for the Community Collabrative Rain, Hail and Snow Network.
Using an official rain gauge available through the networks website, committed volunteers can check 24 hour rain or snow totals each morning then report them to the website.
Officials say the greatest need is in rural areas, where little data is available.
Once Alabama is added to the network on November 1st, you can register at www.cocorahs.com
