Difference between 3hr and 1hr ECMWF?

On the 3hr weather view I see 0.2mm rain at 1800-2100 today. This is clear on the icon on the basic view and also the metro view.
When I switch to the one hour view, there is no rain indicated at all between 1800-2100 and nothing indicating rain on the metro view either.
Is the 1 hour view more accurate or should I stick with the 3hr view and plan for rain? They are the same model which is why I'm surprised at the difference in forecast.

Here you get 0.2mm of rain during the 3 hours. That’s more or less nothing.
If that quantity is spread on the 3 hours, it could give less than 0.1mm per hour.
So it should be worth to check it on a larger rain amount.

@idefix37 thanks! That actually makes perfect sense.
