On 9/27/18 a line of very strong storms moved through and continuous rain fell between 22:00 and 23:30. I noticed on my app that there were a couple times where negative rainfall was reported, and no rainfall rate was qualitatively reported. Total rainfall from the neighbor, 4 houses down with a traditional tip-bucket gauge, from that period was ~0.9", while my SKY unit only picked up on ~0.32". Rainfall rate for the SKY came in around 0.4"/hr, while the neighbor had double the rain rate. I know I will be getting a traditional cocorahs in the near future, given the discrepancy, to better compare, but I know for a fact it rained much harder and in greater quantities than it picked up on. Any thoughts?
