IFTTT Applet created: Stop Rachio watering when Ambient Weather PWS daily rain exceeds x. Tested with Gen 3.

Use your Ambient Weather PWS as a rain sensor to stop watering when unpredicted rain occurs. First a delay water command is issued to stop subsequent schedules from running. Then a stop water command is issued to stop a currently running schedule.

What model Rachio?

Why do you need IFTTT do do that? I have a Rachio 3 and my own PWS, and it has taken the station into account. I would check to see that your zones are configured correctly, likely an adjustment of advanced parameters, to trigger the soil level you can live with to match the rain that fell.
