rainfall recording

  • Question
  • Updated 3 years ago
My 2064 is supposed to record up to 1" of rainfall. When does the recording period start? Is it at midnight?  What happens if there is more than 1" of rain in one day?  Does it dump the first inch and then start recording all over again within a 24 hour period?  If that is the case then I would just total all the readings in one day?

I had the same question.  The answer I got was that despite the 1" graphic limit, the daily rain will continue to be measure and reflected by digital number to its left.

Hi RLL,

June is correct the icon or graph will fill up with up to 1 inch of rain however the actual number readout will continue to measure.  This measurement begins at 12:00am for the daily total.
