I’ve installed a new temperature/humidity sensor in the equipment. The old Humidity sensor was reading 100% at times after heavy rainfalls, so I’m hoping this one will fix that.

The 77mm/hr rain rate value you see if bogus along with the 0.5mm of rainfall, that was unavoidable unfortunately as I had to remove the rain bucket so it recorded a false value. The high temperature of 16 is also false because the new sensor had not completely acclimatized to the new location. I’ll go in to the data at some point and remove those values, for now, just ignore them.

Enjoy the sun for the next couple days!!

  1. Hi Chris.

    Your 16C high temp is quite possible. I registered a high temp of 16.3C at 16:26 on my station. In fact, my station was flirting with 16C from about 3pm til just after 5pm

  2. Really?

    Hmm, well maybe I won’t wipe the temp then, I’ll just remove the rain data.

    Thanks man!

    Chris
