    I woke up this morning to find my B Hyve watered the lawn despite a 51% chance of rain and it rained this morning. My B Hyve has the weather adjustment set at 41% chance of rain. With this setting I understand anything above 41% chance of rain should trigger a delay in my watering schedule. Is this correct? What happened?

    From what I understand a 51% chance of rain actually means it will most likely rain over 51% of the forecast area, so you were within a rain zone. What would be nice is if Orbit was able to use data from precipitation radar maps to not only increase accuracy, but provide more localized data for users. I suspect they would be able to download specific data to localized users based on approaching rain events very quickly. Not only that, but they would have information on total rainfall over time that could be used to specify delays in watering events to prevent further waste of water. Other factors like temperature, average wind speed and humidity information could also be factored into providing accurate delay settings.

    Right but my B Hyve weather adjustment for rain was set at 41% and the forecast was 51% which means a weather delay should have tripped.
