Weather on the Move! Can you make all the high pressure areas on the big weather map spin clockwise and the low pressure areas spin counterclockwise? All at the same time? Get a colorful weather sticker if you can! High pressure areas are clear and sunny while low pressure areas can be cloudy, rainy, or stormy. Color the fronts (cold, warm, stationary, and occluded) on your OWN weather map. Make your weather map into a placemat or hang it in your room!

The Community Collaborative Rain, Hail and Snow Network (CoCoRaHS), Founded in 1998, provides a great platform for communities around the country to participate in "hands-on" science right in their own backyards through the daily observation of precipitation. Volunteers of all ages measure rain, hail and snow using simple low-cost rain gauges and hail pads. These observations are then collected and made available on the CoCoRaHS Web site: www.cocorahs.org. These data are used daily by many federal, state and community organizations and businesses. Through consistent observation and data sharing, participants actively learn about their climate, their water resources and the impacts precipitation has on their lives and their communities.

The CoCoRaHS Network currently engages over 15,500 volunteer observers in communities across all fifty states with over 750 volunteers in the state of Washington. If you would like to report how much rain has fallen in your back yard, we would love to have you as a volunteer observer. To sign-up for CoCoRaHS visit: www.cocorahs.org and click on "Join CoCoRaHS". It's lots of fun and only takes five minutes a day.

A model mountain slope has been constructed and regular baking flour is used to simulate snowfall! The "snow" is gradually sifted onto the "mountain slope" until "avalanches" release from various parts of the slope. Questions that might be answered by the simulation include: 1. Which part of the slope releases first and why? 2. How does this model simulate a real avalanche? The NWAC promotes safety by helping reduce the impacts of avalanches and adverse mountain weather on recreation, industry and transportation in Washington, and northern Oregon through data collection, mountain weather and avalanche forecasting and education.

The USGS Washington Water Science Center has served water resource information to Washington residents since the 1890s. We are an unbiased, nonregulatory science agency of the Federal government. We provide water data and investigative studies to maintain a reliable supply of drinking water, as well as to protect people from floods and other natural disasters. Our data are also used to manage water resources for hydroelectric power, agriculture, manufacturing, recreation, and the environment. The USGS operates the most extensive satellite network of stream-gaging stations in the state, providing up-to-date information for flood warning and water-supply for various uses.
