Yes, we’ve been getting them since about gs 36? Can’t remember exactly when they start, but they have increased steadily since the rain arrived?. Also getting predictions for spring barley this year so will be interesting to see how close they are.is yours giving yield predictions this year ? ours doesn’t seem to be ........ maybe they are so low it can’t measure them this time !
That can be said for any weather station.full of hobby home £30 stations set up badly i. the shadow of a house or tree in a small back garden etc
i would take the numbers with a pinch of salt !
Met Office. Sites recording rainfall accurately are limited to airfields as the gauges need regular maintenance. My nearest free source of long term data is Bournemouth Airport which is 40 minutes away & closer to the coast, so only a rough guide.Which sites for total rainfall on a postcode?
your missing my point I think ?That can be said for any weather station.
One a mile up the road could catch a thunder shower and nothing at home.
Use them for an average .
The last 12 months to end of April we have had average rainfall. The facts is was over average for 6 months and under for 6 doesn't matter, its average ?
looking at my map there your closest “public” Sencrop is Tycross or our hammerwich one, both a bit far away reallyThere’s one of them within 1/2 mile but it doesn’t seem to list total rainfall for some reason? I find it extremely busy and messy full of adverts.
Twycross recorded 46mm yesterday. Our two rain gauges recorded 17 and 18mm respectively and twycross as the crow flies is only 3 miles away as the crow flies so it’s very localised. We are only on 38mm since April where as they are on nearly 80mmlooking at my map there your closest “public” Sencrop is Tycross or our hammerwich one, both a bit far away really
if you want good data fir your own location buy one, they are not silly money and very good bits of kit
only way to get your own accurate data is to install a station - the sencrop is very good and not crazy moneyTwycross recorded 46mm yesterday.

Just out of interest what does it achieve unless you do it yourself.your missing my point I think ?
many cheap “Maplin“ weather stations on networks like Wunderland are bought by people who can not possibly locate them correctly in a small garden with building a tree shadow etc I would a,so question the accuracy of £30 hardware having run such a station the past it was not accurate at all
the only data worth using from Wunderland is the pro stations as @Brisel suggests like airports etc
a Sencrop or other more professional grade stuff is not likely to be bought by such a users given its much higher price tag so will be set up in a bigger space most likely
I agree though rain is very local, we have several Sencrop and yesterday they measured as much as 12 mmm Difference in just a few hours .............. if you want accurate data you need your own station that’s for sure, next best if to tight to buy one is find the closest Sencrop on the app !
same with most data - it’s interesting but getting value from it is another thing ! - helps our records be accurate re assurance recording of application weather I guessJust out of interest what does it achieve unless you do it yourself.
I know it's nice to know but even by measuring it you gain no advantage?
