Quick Guide To Monitoring
We recommend using Weather Underground to source your rainfall data. The video below will walk you through how to find the weather station that is closest to your monitoring station and find the associated historic rainfall data. This site is best displayed on a laptop or tablet, not a phone. Rainfall is displayed in inches, so be sure to convert this into millimeters before reporting on your datasheet. (1 in = 25.4 mm).
Example: 7 day rainfall total displayed on Wunderground adds up to 0.89 inches. 0.89 x 25.4 = 22.6mm
