Rainfall not showing in moisture balance graph


#1

We got a tiny bit of rain last night but I’m not seeing it reflected in the moisture balance graph. As I understand it, since I’m set to start watering at 5am, there’s a check at 4am to look for any precipitation, right? At 4am, there should have been .02 in. Granted, not enough to defer watering but my question is when will that amount show up in the graph details? Is Aug 11 stuck in forecasting mode until tomorrow and then it will show up?

@franz do you want me to just sit on this for 24h and see if it then shows up tomorrow?

Whelp, it’s there now. Boy, that’s quite the delay.

@cfwiggum, sorry for the delay in getting back to you.

Sounds like there was roughly a 12 hour delay if your station was reporting rain at 3a?

The first indication of rain was actually at around 1AM. You can see in the historical data reported to wunderground here:

KCAMONTA13

So I’d say it was somewhere between 13 and 15 hours. It wasn’t there at 2:20pm pacific, it was there at 4:00pm. I report to CWOP slightly slower than I do to wunderground but that would only account for up to 15 minutes. I think aeris is using cwop?
