NOTE : Would you like to be an official Rain Gauge Reader ( observer ) for the BoM.
If you live in the Franklin area and would like to take on the daily Rain Observations for Franklin, please contact me at support@southfranklinweather.com or by using our contact form on this website. Originally since the early days the Official Rain Gauge for Franklin resided at the Old Church now accommodation, the BoM could not find anyone in Franklin Town to take it on and so in 2013 BoM approached me and I have done so till now. However due to health issues I will no longer be able to in the next month or so. If you would like to see the readings continue for Franklin please take it on.
