Mike Nadolksi, NWS observation program leader, said Constable and Mattice take temperature and precipitation readings each day, and are among 72 other observers in 24 counties covering upstate New York and northeast Pennsylvania.

“It’s all very important to us, what they do,” Nadolski said. “All this data goes to the National Climatic Data Center in North Carolina. They keep the climatology records across the United States,” which is used for a variety of purposes.

Watson added that the observers’ work helps the NWS with daily forecasts and keeping track of river levels. 

“Their dedication is phenomenal,” Nadolski said of Constable, Mattice and all the cooperative observers in our region.
