The display is not going to tell you what time a rain event started, it will only give you the measurement for the current rain event. Your rainfall event will clear when no rain registers for 8 hours or no rain registers for 1 hour and pressure rises by .03inhg or more.
Thank you, Crystal, I appreciate your response, but that really isn't what I was asking. I'm wondering how it's possible to record daily rainfall at the same time with this model. With my other rain gauge, for example, I can empty it every day at 5:00 and record the amount. How can I use this Acurite model to record rainfall at the same time each day?
