Storm total is up to 82mm here (manual gauge). For some reason my Davis is under reporting by quite a bit with this. I’ve noticed this before, usually when the rain drops are unusually large.

Fairly hefty.

Just emptied the manual gauge... 80.1 mm storm total compared to 77.6 mm on my Davis. A difference of about 3% -- I think that's about as close as you can reasonably expect.
