Where can I find the locations on snow fall recording stations in a particular United States county or zip code? Is there a way that I can find an hour by hour recent history of snow fall? Hour by hour for the last 7 days would be interesting but even the last 24 hours would be very helpful. I need to to know where and when to dispatch crews to remove snow from office and apartment buildings, often in the middle of the night when I don't have eyes on the ground.
I may have to resort to installing web cams so I can personally review the conditions remotely. The lake level stations are so accurate and easily accessible, I thought they might have sometime for precipitation as well.
I would prefer reports in inches of precipitation rather than inches of snow, but either would work. I find the former to be more accurate for my needs. It's the amount of water that needs to me moved that matters, no matter if it is densely packed or loosely packed.
