BECOME A NWS/NOAA COOPERATIVE OBSERVER
The NWS Cooperative Observer Program is truly the national weather observing network of, by, and for the people. More than 8,700 volunteers take observations where they live, work, and play. The NWS depends on these volunteer observers, committed to taking observations at the same location for 10 or more years, to report daily weather and climate information using the phone or internet. NWS provides the training, equipment, and maintenance — you provide daily data! Your observations support warnings, forecasts, and help build a long-term weather history for an area. This program has existed since 1890 and is one of the few programs that measures snowfall and its water equivalent.

NOAA.gov: “Atlantic high-activity eras:
What does it mean for hurricane season?”
“Why are some Atlantic hurricane seasons more active than others?
For any given season, multiple ocean and atmospheric conditions, such as El Nino or La Nina, influence whether Atlantic storms develop, how big they get and how long they last. Since 1995, we have been experiencing what scientists refer to as an active or high-activity era for Atlantic hurricane seasons — a natural, cyclical phenomenon.”
