A fence mounted rain gauge is a good option when choosing a rain gauge.
It means you have the flexibility to locate the rain gauge in a position protected from the prevailing weather. To do this simply install the rain gauge behind the post instead of in front of the post where it would be exposed to the wind.
Select a fence or post in an area clear of tall trees or buildings to ensure you get accurate results when measuring the rainfall collected.
Make sure you mount the rain gauge so it sits higher than the post or fence rail if possible, this will avoid any splash back into the rain gauge and thereby skewing the result.
The Outback Blue rain gauge or the Outdoor Home rain gauge include a fence mounting kit complete with screws.
