    Hi Joe,

    The RainMachine should auto correct, actual rain is always registered for "yesterday" if you have a historical weather service like WUnderground.

    This actual rain will get taken into account to next simulation or watering.

    As a rule of thumb: RainMachine waters for the future using forecast data and corrects by looking in the past using actual measurements (or better forecasts for that day).

    The better forecasts means for example if you have a program to start at 10AM and weather service has a noticeable change after the program has run, it will correct at next watering.

    Watering for the future just means, that it couldn't be better than used forecast(S) quality.
    BTW, how to use RM WU service for station measurements only and not for forecast? Possible in 4.0.900?

    Jurek — you can modify the WU parser to remove forecast data and upload to the unit as a user supplied parser. But that’s complicated for most — I’d like to see RM have the option to only use station data as an option for WU built in to the default WU parser. In the interim, I did modify the existing to do what you describe. If you go that route, copy and paste the parser on the unit and not the Git repository as git is not up to date with current version.
