Daily Drops In dewpoint
« on: September 30, 2017, 06:22:08 PM »
For the last month i have 1 -2 random times during the day where the dew point drops crazily on WU. Do you think this has something to do with the sensor reporting badly or just something wrong with the data when WU receives it or processes it.

That is quite a dip! Do you have a display that you can check to see if it's reporting the same information?

Did you have a myAcurite account? If you do, did you check that?

You've got a bigger problem than that.  Your dewpoint graph isn't realistic as it always hugging the temperature graph.

I'd guess your humidity sensor is stuck at 99% or so.

Have noticed that also but its not always at 99 have do see it move around some , but not what you would actually think it should be, going to bring down the  5-1  and try to clean out and see if anything is out of place. If that dosnt work will have to decide if i'm going to just live with it the way it is or buy a new unit.
