My 5 in 1 weather station model 01512 normally seems to report rainfall accurately, but yesterday it did not - buy a huge amount.  My weather station display said 16+ inches, my acurite web display said 14+ inches, but the actual rainfall in my immediate area was 7+ inches and I confirmed this on other local stations on weatherunderground that are a flew blocks from me.   Was this just a fluke?  I don't want to have to crawl up on my roof to take down the unit and perform the rain calibration or hard reset if I don't have to.

Was it really windy.  If you shake the mast enough, the buckets will flip (.01 per flip)
