This is Goose's daughter, Laura. I am doing a science project on the effect of rainfall on salinity in the Severn River. I did this project in middle school and am expanding it for 9th grade. I am trying to find online data that shows how much rain fell in Annapolis each day from September 1st until now, preferably in a graph form that spans that time. If anyone knows of a place where I can find that, I would really appreciate your help!

Thank you!:D

Guys, thanks very much for taking the time to post this information. Laura really appreciates the help. (And we both are happy that this is her last science project of her secondary school career.)

http://water.weather.gov/precip/

It is hard to find historic precipitation data broken down into daily amounts. The above site has good information on rainfall but it covers a large geographic area and it summarizes the data in 7, 14 and 30 day time series.

The best data would come from a locally-maintained weather station, such as one located at an airport. In Annapolis the Naval Academy is an official NOAA National Weather Service observation location and you could check into the availability of daily precip info--but I have no idea who to contact.

Good luck with the science project!!

Laura, Accu-Weather Professional (www.proa.accuweather.com) offers daily rainfall for Annapolis, but it's a subscription service. CBF has a subscription. Try these links. Hope it helps. If not, give me a call and we'll figure out a way to get it for you.
