I am not sure if there is something wrong my my ISS or with my Meteobridge. Iíve been noticing that after it stops raining, the rain rate on my various sites (WU, Ambient Weather, CWOP, etc.) may still read 0.01 in/hr for several hours after it stops raining. I donít know why it is displaying this and this is reflected in my graphs for rain rate. The total rainfall is not affected.

Does anyone know what could be causing this and what I can do to fix this? Itís not really a big issue, just annoying.

Have you checked to see if something has clogged your rain gauge? when mine does that it is always debris slowing the flow down to a drip so it takes awhile to catch up.

Finally got a nice morning to clean it out. The tipping spoons had a little bit of dirt on them, nothing too bad. The drains on either side were also in pretty good shape, but I still cleaned them. The underside of my debris screen and the hole in the rain collector was covered in pollen so that might have slowed the flow of the rain a little.
