    RainMachine waters for the future and corrects for the past. If you have a daily program, today it will water for tomorrow evapo-transpiration but it will add/remove any extra/under watering that he did for today (calculated yesterday). With the observed data, that we always receive 1 day in the past, the correction is done at the next watering. There are no weather services configured in the RainMachine that get the same day observed data, mostly because it will be difficult to work with observed partials when correcting.

    Nicholas -

    Thanks for the reply - that actually makes sense.

    So in other words, it may sometimes over-water due to unexpected same-day precip that it hasn't analyzed yet, but the next day it will realize the over-watering and adjust the next watering accordingly?
