dashboard and wg show a sudden increase in my rain event from .23 to 1.69 within 2 minutes. why? Then it went up to 1.73in, there was no rain rate increase to support a false reading. and it did this within minutes. also the acurite console (hub) has acurate data. doesn't show this ghost data. I tried to delete it in wunderground... But I guess It cannot be undone from the totals... just the raw table data. I rule out wind tipping the cups as the wind was only blowing 7 mph or so and I have had much stronger wind from that direction and it has never done this. any ideas? just some sudden glitch?

i see that the rain rate does show the increased rain... but it shows the accumulations occuring over 5 minutes not two.  this rain increase didn't happen though. and my console (hub) is accurate in that it doesn't show this increase.
