I switched my rachio to start using the “KTXCYPRE319” Weather station since it’s really accurate being that it’s so close to my house. I woke up on 04/30/2021 to a pouring ran outside and thankfully rachio skipped my irrigation schedule which is perfect. The one thing i would like clarification on though is i noticed the following message show up indicating why the irrigation was skipped:
“Fixed Schedule was scheduled for 4/30 at 03:49AM (CDT) but was skipped due to KTXCYPRE319 which predicted 1.39 in precipitation compared to schedule’s threadhold of 0.13 in.”
Is this weather station ( KTXCYPRE319 ) somehow using it’s own precipitation prediction that rachio is aware of? My understanding was weather predictions do not come from weather stations and is some service or third party the rachio developers use to perform predictions?
