This runs irrigation based on the WeatherBug's Rain Today information.


Var_RainInPast36Hours - which is an empty flag program. It is set and managed by two programs Weather_RainCountdown and Weather_RainFall.

If
   - No Conditions - (To add one, press 'Schedule' or 'Condition')
 
Then
   - No Actions - (To add one, press 'Action')
 
Else
   - No Actions - (To add one, press 'Action')


Weather_RainCountdown - When triggered, it sets the Var_RainInPast36Hours program to true, waits for 36 hours, then sets the same to false. The countdown program is broken out into another program because the first program was stopping during the Wait portion whenever WeatherBug reported Rain Today as zero inches (because the conditions were being re-evaluated). This way the countdown should run uninterrupted for 36 hours.

If
   - No Conditions - (To add one, press 'Schedule' or 'Condition')

Then
        Run Program 'Var_RainInPast36Hours' (Then Path)
        Wait 36 hours
        Run Program 'Var_RainInPast36Hours' (Else Path)

Else
   - No Actions - (To add one, press 'Action')


Weather_RainFall - It restarts the countdown each time WeatherBug reports that Rain Today is greater than zero inches:

If
        Module 'Climate' Rain Today is not 0 "

Then
        Stop program 'Weather_RainCountdown'
        Run Program 'Weather_RainCountdown' (Then Path)

Else
   - No Actions - (To add one, press 'Action')


Var_TempBelow40 - which is an empty flag program. It is set and managed by one program Weather_TempBelow40Check.

If
   - No Conditions - (To add one, press 'Schedule' or 'Condition')
 
Then
   - No Actions - (To add one, press 'Action')
 
Else
   - No Actions - (To add one, press 'Action')


Weather_TempBelow40Check - checks the temp and updates the flag program. This program is updated each time the WeatherBug module updates.

If
        Module 'Climate' Temperature < 40 °F
 
Then
        Run Program 'Var_TempBelow40' (Then Path)
 
Else
        Run Program 'Var_TempBelow40' (Else Path)


Var_TempAbove90 - which is an empty flag program. It is set and managed by one program Weather_TempAbove90Check.

If
   - No Conditions - (To add one, press 'Schedule' or 'Condition')
 
Then
   - No Actions - (To add one, press 'Action')
 
Else
   - No Actions - (To add one, press 'Action')


Weather_TempAbove90Check - checks the temp and updates the flag program. This program is updated each time the WeatherBug module updates at 3 pm when it is usually the hottest part of the day. This temp will be the previous day so there is some margin of error.

If
        Module 'Climate' Temperature > 90 °F
   And Time is  3:00:00PM
 
Then
        Run Program 'Var_TempAbove90' (Then Path)
 
Else
        Run Program 'Var_TempAbove90' (Else Path)

        Time is Sunrise - 1 hour and 30 minutes
   And Program 'Var_RainInPast36Hours' is False
   And Program 'Var_TempBelow40' is False

Then
        Run Program 'Run_IrrigationStations' (If)

Else
   - No Actions - (To add one, press 'Action')


Run_IrrigationStations - the Var_TempAbove90 program is used as a condition for my irrigation program as follows:

If

        Set 'Station1 Front Lawn1' On
        Wait  8 minutes
