Precipitation

Precipitation data is collected both manually and using the AWS.  Rainfall is measured using a tipping bucket VP2 AWS.  The buckets tip every 0.2mm and thus a rain total and rainfall rate can be recorded.  Rainfall is also measured manually using a CoCoRaHs manual rain guage installed in the weather station enclosure.  Snow fall and depth is recorded manually.
