Join the NJ CoCoRaHS Program
CoCoRaHS -- an acronym for the Community Collaborative Rain, Hail, and Snow Network -- began in New Jersey on Groundhog Day (February 2nd), 2008. The CoCoRaHS network of volunteer weather observers has rapidly expanded
to include over 14,000 active observers in all 50 states nationwide. Through the use of low-cost measurement tools and by emphasizing training, CoCoRaHS volunteers take accurate daily observations of precipitation and snow cover.
All that's required to be a CoCoRaHS participant is the desire to watch and report weather conditions, access to an internet-connected computer, and the appropriate measurement tools (a 4" diameter plastic rain gauge and a ruler).

Welcome to the new NJWxnet
Welcome to the new NJ Weather and Climate network (NJWxNet) web site, your one-stop destination for New Jersey weather and climate information. The NJWxNet can help keep your finger on the pulse of what is going on in your community and throughout NJ.
Take a tour and you will find hourly, real-time observations from dozens of New Jersey weather stations displayed in new and improved maps, tables and graphs. Major upgrades include custom maps created using software originally developed for the successful Oklahoma Mesonet. Greatly enhanced station-specific pages include the latest local atmospheric observations along with links to nearby stream flow and ground water gauges and a local web camera.
The NJWxNet is a public service of the Office of the New Jersey State Climatologist
at Rutgers University. Thank you for visiting the NJWxNet. Questions and feedback are always welcome. You can send a message to: support
