Snowfall totals across Campbell County today

(Gillette, Wyo.) Official snowfall totals from the National Weather Service won't be available for a few more hours. But CoCoRaHS -- the community rain, hail, and snow network -- turned in results this morning that between 4 and 6 inches of snow had fallen in the area. David King with Campbell County Emergency Management is a member of CoCoRaHS and took precipitation readings this morning with his standard rain gauge, which looks like this: [image: gauge.png] That measures rain and melted snow, of which he says there was .81 inches. But for a more practical measurement, he uses a ruler stuck in the snow and takes an average out of several locations that he measures. For him, that was 5.6 inches. We've started a community photo album for the first spring snowfall of 2016. If you have a photo you'd like to include, send it to us ! #county17 #news
