Weather Underground says my area got from 4-7" of rain in nearby areas, but I have a bucket out on the middle of my driveway that filled about 15" (or more) deep. Is it just my microclimate or is rainfall measured differently than seems obvious? BTW, in my research I discovered that meteorologists define temperature as that IN THE SHADE. I never knew that. \_ Temperature is not a well-defined quantity in sunlight. \_ http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rain_gauge \_ How is a rain gauge different from a simple bucket? To me, my bucket is a rain gauge is it not? \_ Rain totals are given per 24hr period. Did you empty your bucket daily? \_ No, I did not. It was empty on Friday. However, I looked up the weekly rain totals for the last two weeks (we are already in a new week now) and they were about 7 inches total (5.x last week and 1.x this week so far). I looked at a lot of Personal Weather Station data in my general area and some reported even less than 7 inches but none anywhere near how much is in my bucket. \_ Did you actually stick a ruler in your bucket to measure it? Your method should have worked, assuming your bucket has perpendicular sides. \_ It's a paint bucket so yes it's a big cylinder. I measured 14 inches just now. \_ This passage from the web page may explain OP's problem: "Also, rain gauges only indicate rainfall in a localized area. ......" \_ Well, duh. \_ If you are truly curious, you should get this http://www.scientificsales.com/Davis-6152-Wireless-Vantage-Pro2-p/6152.htm I would, but it's a hassle convincing the wife, hehe. ;) \_ I am thinking about getting this or something similar. It makes me wonder how much of our weather data really applies to us specifically.```
