So, yesterday my rachio predicted (correctly) that we would have over 2 inches of rain. And that this would 100%+ saturate my yard (which it did). Accordingly, it moved out the next watering date to 6 days hence (good idea).
Imagine my surprise when I hear the sprinklers go off this morning as if nothing had happened. Checked the moisture guesstimate in the app all zones were reading nearly bone dry.
What happened here? I had to manually cancel the watering - no point in watering ground that was already saturated. It’s like it had a change of heart AFTER the torrential downpour (which was wide area - not a microclimate issue at all).
