Collecting temperature and rainfall data

Can I collect the daily temperature and rainfall data from my home or the National Weather Service if it is collected close to my site?

Collecting rainfall and temperature data from your site would be best since rainfall and temperature can be quite "patchy". However, if the weather service station is within a reasonable distance from your site, then using that data would be fine. You should make a note of this on your data sheet.
