Rainfall measurement system is a useful tool in weather measurement system. In tropical country such as Malaysia, rainfall measurement for agricultural and weather forecasting system is very important. Samplingrelated tipping-bucket (TB) rain gauge measurements have significant errors for short time estimation. In this paper, a stable electronic rain gauge system with comprehensive data manipulation is designed and developed. This project used two major systems (a) tipping bucket with
