What you need to install is something commonly called "bird spikes" that make the rim of your gauge bowl an unattractive perch.

I don't think there's a pre-made set for Acurite products, but they're pretty easy to make by hand.  Plastic zip ties seem to work well.

See photo to get a general idea of what I'm talking about for a generic rain gauge.
