Weather organizations on the lookout for volunteers

The potential for dramatic shifts in conditions and regular severe weather make it imperative that data can be gathered from across the area. National Weather Service Green Bay employs a system of cooperative volunteers to help take readings. There are two ways to be involved. The first is to ask them. They also might come to you, according to Rebecca Hykin.


Locations are carefully picked so that stations are not overly shaded, or too close to pavement. Keep your eye to the sky, or at least the NWS Green Bay social media pages if you are interested in joining. Only 55 official coop observers, along with 14 specializing in fishing conditions are utilized to cover a 22-county area. An unofficial network is used for some data. It includes additional volunteer measuring stations.
