@eganders Currently we look at 1 day observed and 1 day predicted precipitation. If we don't meet the threshold we also look at the last week's worth of evapotranspiration (ET) data and if precipitation offsets ET, we also skip. This is helpful for significant rain events that happen more than one day in the past. We are working with a water expert on how to combine this with water budgeting and have one unified view.
We don't currently look ahead to the next scheduled event, but it is very easy to do.
All of this is being looked at for one more pass at smart water optimization. We've learned a ton and have a very flexible system where by now we can do some really cool things with all of the data we have access to.
Hope this helps, let us know if you have any more feedback or thoughts.
