NASA, UW team up to track rain, snow in soggy Washington

SEATTLE (AP) — Scientists are fanning out across one of the soggiest places in the United States this month to measure raindrops and snowflakes like never before.

They’re using everything from a customized DC-8 jetliner to four-inch rain gauges.

The field experiment led by NASA and the University of Washington will attempt to validate, on the ground, how well global satellites measure precipitation from space.
