The question is, should I be concerned about any calibration issues?  Could the rain tipper be thrown off?  Should I order a new temp sensor?
I would think doubtfully. I'd certainly watch it before I bought anything though, or get another SHT31 as a spare. My spare's in use now.

I suppose by watch, you mean watch for any erratic behavior or lack of reporting?  I received my new standoff/screw parts last night and opened up the shield.  Attached are a couple pictures of the SHT31.  I assume this is in the right position?  I couldn't find any diagrams online which portrayed the way the sensor is supposed to sit below the fan housing.

Yes.

Everything is where it should be.

Except for an AC fan. Sorry couldn't resist. Ah, the look inside to the guts of a new weather station (sniffs for that new car smell). Enjoy it!
