Have you ever wanted to accurately measure rainfall without having to rely on weather reports? Follow along with this video from ABC11 Science Club to discover how!

How do I use my rain gauge?

When you put it outside, place it in an open space, clear of trees and gutters to get an accurate reading of rainfall. You may want to put it in a planter to keep it from tipping over.

Be sure to keep recordings of your rainfall - and be sure to empty your rain gauge every day so evaporation doesn't impact results!
