Rain Gauge
Contains several activities to see how rain gauges work.

  • Rain Gauge Description: The rain gauge measures the amount of liquid precipitation that falls

  • The rain gauge has an outer cylinder, a measuring tube, and a funnel

  • When snow is to be measured, bring the entire gauge into a warm room

  • Instructions for Set Up The bracket of the gauge should be fastened to an upright post that allows the gauge to sit above the ground

  • The top of the gauge should be 5 inches above the top of the post

  • The gauge should sit firmly in the bracket

  • Rain Gauge Activity: Rain Is Falling All Around Objective: Students will be able to measure the amount of rain in one rainfall event to the nearest hundredth (.01) inch

  • Materials : Rain Gauge Time: 45 minutes before a rain event is predicted and 45 minutes after the end of a rain event where the gauge has been used to collect the entire rainfall

  • Background Information: The rain gauge measures the amount of rain (or snow as liquid) that falls to the earth as part of the water cycle

  • Procedure: Introduce the students to the rain gauge before a rain event is predicted

  • Using a chalk or white board, have students figure out a number of possible readings or use the rain gauge worksheet

    Supplying weather stations, handheld weather monitors and weather software
    throughout the UK and Europe.

    Rain Gauge For Snow Rain And All Weather Conditions Snow Gauge
    Offers a graduated polycarbonate gauge for manual precipitation measurement.

  • The Official Rain Gauge measures rain snow, sleet and hail to the nearest 1/100th of an inch

  • Farmers, gardeners, weather enthusiasts, radio stations and TV stations use the Official Rain Gauge for accurate readings

  • With a hard driving rain, a decorative rain gauge can be off by as much as 25 percent! Use the Official Rain Gauge for precise measurements

  • The Official All Weather Features: * Giant 11” Capacity * Accuracy to 1/100th of an inch * Easy to Read * Rugged & Rustproof * UV Resistant * Simple to Install * Available in Metric * Collects Snow, Sleet and Hail The top funnel of the rain gauge catches rain and delivers it to the one-inch capacity measuring tube

  • TherMon screen grab Rain gauge You may have spotted some icons in the windows referring to a rain gauge

  • The rain gauge kit Inside sits a tipping bucket – see close-up,

  • At the rain gauge this must be connected to the two wires protruding from the PCB

  • To attach the gauge to a pole requires two ‘Jubilee’ clips

  • If the water runs through too quickly some will get lost during each tip, and the gauge will under-read

  • This is a known short-coming of tipping-bucket gauges

  • Even if your system does not run for 24 hours a day the rain gauge should still accumulate the correct total precipitation

  • ‘Devices’ revisited As for the main instrument Oww needs to determine the serial number of the 1-wire counter in the rain gauge
