First Rain Event

Today we had our first drop of rain since I received my weather station in late August. I shouldn’t say “drop” – my station’s inaugural shower came down in buckets, registering as “Very Heavy” on the WeatherFlow app.

So, if I remember correctly, it takes a couple of rain events for the Sky to calibrate itself, is that correct? Checking out other stations near me on Weather Underground (not WF stations), my station reported half of the rainfall accumulation that nearby stations reported. My app shows .29" (which we got in one hour), while neighboring stations came in at over .5". Is that to be expected until I’ve got a couple of rain events under my belt?
