Default [OT] Philippines rainfall

I've been looking at rainfall totals over the Philippines. One that has
really caught my eye is at Baguio City, about 125 miles north of
Manila. In the 24 hours ending at 0600z today they had 543 mm. Perhaps
even more remarkable is that in the 30 days ending at 0600z today the
total is 2114 mm. On 6 days during that period the 24-hour total
(0600z-0600z) was over 100 mm and on a further 10 days it was over 25
mm. That's a lot of rain!

Often wonder how rain gauges cope with such high rainfall rates.
Big tipping buckets I suppose?

There may be issues with tipping bucket gauges in tropical cyclones. In Florence, some U.S. stations were recording rainfall totals well in excess of the inferences from the rainfall radar. It has been theorised that the strong winds cause the buckets to tip prematurely before they fill completely, over-reading the rainfall accumualtion.
