Overview

The Rain Calendar Insight Panel's purpose is a specific one. It is not meant to be used over wide geographical area. Instead, it is designed to show you the year-over-year precipitation differences for a small region, over a given calendar month in time. The results can help you interpret whether the weekend was persistently rainy and whether that may have been the cause for a negative impact upon sales.  The default behavior uses your current location, but you can easily customize the time and location using the Settings Gear.
