Charlotte-Mecklenburg Rainfall Network

PROVISIONAL DATA SUBJECT TO REVISION

There are 72 sites collecting 5-minute interval precipitation data in the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Network.

Most sites use line-of-site radios to transmit the data to the USGS within minutes after data is recorded. These data are loaded in the USGS database before the next 5-minute interval and available online soon after.

4 sites (CRN29, CRN38, CRN40, and CRN41) use satellite telemetry to transmit the data to the USGS database hourly. During storm events, the data can be transmitted more frequently.

All of the radio sites are equipped with an ALERT(Automated Local Evaluation in Real-Time) transmitter for sending real-time rainfall values as part of the FINS network.

Current Rainfall Data

Rainfall Network in Charlotte and around Mecklenburg County

CRN ID is the project identification number assigned to each rain gage within the network.
* At some CRN locations, the monitoring gages have been relocated or the Station ID has been re-assigned without a physical move. See the CRN Nework Table (XLSX, 25 Kb) for a detailed history.

Columns are sortable. Sort multiple columns by pressing the Shift key and clicking a second, third (etc.) column header.
