Re: Recording Weather Data
It sounds like 'Lewis 6' is your Skywarn ID, mine is Snohomish 121.
If you are logging on to the CoCoRaHS website to report your weather information on the 'Daily Precipitation Report Form', your station number and name is at the top of that form. All other information you would fill in at the top of the Excel Spreadsheet is available at the CoCoRaHS website after you login.
If you are currently not a CoCoRaHS member please go to the website at cocorahs.org and at the right hand side of the page there is an Icon that says 'Join CoCoRaHS click here'. Just click this and it will take you to a sign up page. It's all free and a lot of fun. After joining you will be issued a Station Number and Name.
I hope this helps. If you have any further questions, you can email me directly at k7yhb@....
> I got a weather station from Santa and have been using that form daily since the 1st of the year. When I went though the training a couple years a couple year ago I was assigned Lewis 6.
> On the spreadsheet, there is a heading Section for Stn Name and Stn number. Could you help me out? If my observer number is Lewis 6 .... what is my Stn name and Stn number? Confused as usual. I enjoy recording this daily information for my personal information, but is this something I should send to someone? I am still confused about the difference between the observer for Skywarn and CoCoRaHA.
