Background Info: Typically, we associate the 32°F mark as the point where we can see rainfall begin to changeover to snow, but we know it is actually more complicated than this. In some mountainous regions, the shift from snow to rain during winter storms may actually occur at warmer temperatures approaching 39.5°F. What is the Mountain Rain or Snow project? This project was launched to take on the challenge of enhancing the prediction of snow accumulation and rainfall that may lead to flooding by making real-time observations of winter weather. How can the public help? Participate in Mountain Rain or Snow in three steps: Sign up to receive storm alerts via text 2) Log in to the Mountain Rain or Snow web app (https://rainorsnow.app) 3) Send observations whenever you see rain, snow, or mixed precipitation. Location: The web app needs your location to submit an observation, so make sure that your device’s location permissions are set to ON. Reach a member of the team: If you have questions, you can directly reply to your most recent text message from the team (855-909-0798) at any time. Send observations while out of service: If you do not have cell service/wifi when you submit, the web app will save your observation for you to manually upload later.
