New user and first time poster.
I just installed the Rachio 3 and it went off for the first time yesterday morning as scheduled.
We have a cold front coming through Florida which typically brings rain. Last night, the chance of rain was in the 80%. When I looked at the weather in the Rachio map, it only read 15% chance of rain
. I tried to switch it to a specific station less than 1 mile from me and it still read 15%.
After waking up this morning, my weather station out back (not connected to the internet) showed .45" of rain. I checked back on the Rachio weather and it showed 0" of rain for both yesterday and today’s date. The soil moisture level is showing over 100% (for some zones) which is higher than before the rain… So something registered it.
I feel that it wouldn’t have gone off yesterday had known it was going to rain.
My current zip code is 33913.
Rain skip is set to .125"
I’m using weather network and flex daily.
Due to restrictions, I have the schedule set to water Thursdays and Sundays.
