Lately when I look at my zones the soil moisture percentage has been changing in ways that make no sense. Yesterday morning, the 26th at 6:15, all the zones showed 110%. Now this was with no rain for days and sprinkling in some zones on the 25th and the 23rd. My recollection was that the afternoon of the 25th, zones showed soil moisture of the 80s.
Skip ahead to this morning. We had .84 inches of rain here before last midnight and the soil moisture shows (at 1pm) 94% and 92%. An hour ago it showed moisture in the 70s and 80s in each zone. It’s muggy, overcast and 75 degrees presently.
Is there a timing issue with the software? I would have thought that this morning the moisture should be pegged at 110%.
What am I not understanding?
