GRAY — The National Weather Service is looking for volunteer weather observers to measure and map rain, hail and snow in Maine and New Hampshire.

The weather service is seeking weather enthusiasts to take part in its Community Collaborative Rain, Hail and Snow Network. Each time it rains, hails or snows, backyard weather watchers take measurements that are then posted on the network’s website.

The next training session is Dec. 14, at the Mount Washington Observatory in New Hampshire.
