Rain Check Network




Get a Water Survey raingage
and start measuring precipitation!


Think about the weather. How much rain fell in your backyard during the last storm?
Is this month wetter or drier than the last? Don't know? Use a rain gauge and find out!

The Rain Check Network is an initiative for the primary and secondary students of Illinois, although anyone can submit raingage measurements. It is designed to be an instructive tool, and is not to be used as a resource for definitive, quality-assured scientific data. For official data, please see our data page.
