iSeeChange: Predicting Rain

Jul 12, 2012

The summer monsoons have finally arrived in Colorado. And when it rains it pours. Highway 24 between Redcliff and Leadville washed out yesterday, and ditches have flooded more local roads as well. But at the same time, neighbors down the road don’t get a drop.

For the iSeeChange project, KVNF’s Julia Kumari Drapkin asked Colorado’s state climatologist about why it’s so hard to predict when and where it will rain.

Produced by Julia Kumari Drapkin, the iSeeChange project at KVNF is part of Localore, a nationwide production of AIR designed to accelerate transformation and extend public service media to all Americans.   KVNF was selected as one of  only 10 Localore stations across the country—learn more at Localore is funded by the Corporation for Public Broadcasting, the Wyncote Foundation, the John T. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation, and the National Endowment for the Arts. Interactive storytelling partner Zeega co-produced with iSeeChange.
