@wifi75: depending on your need, there are a couple of ways to ignore rain for one day. One is use the ‘Rain Delay’ feature — this allows you to manually stop irrigation for a specified amount of hours. You can also choose to use ‘Auto Rain Delay’ as your weather algorithm, which will leverage weather forecast to predict if it’s going to rain and issue rain delay automatically. You can also choose to use ‘Zimmerman’ as your weather algorithm — it calculates a watering percentage. During days of rain, it will reduce the watering percentage and if that percentage is close to 0% that’s basically equivalent to skip a day’s irrigation.
