The Department of Marine Resources utilizes online weather reporting stations to determine rainfall amounts.  This data is publicly available at

The DMR hosts a reporting hotline and automated website to inform harvesters and the public of local closures based on rainfall.

Weather Underground provides a free APP called WunderStation that allows you to view, analyze, share and compare data from local personal weather stations with beautiful, customizable charts and graphics. (At this time, WunderStation is only compatible with iPad®, iPad Air™, iPad Mini™, and iOS versions 7 and higher.)
