Right now my Davis VP Pro states it's raining at 63mm per hour (which I believe because it's coming down in torrents) and WD says Overcast and Gloomy/Stopped Raining.

Last Friday it rained all day (40.8mm of rain for the day). All day WD said Overcast and Gloomy/Stopped Raining.

My Davis VP Pro says "It's Raining Cats and Dogs".

Obviously I have something set incorrectly but I do not know what.

I had Control Panel/Summary Image/Icons Setup    Rain Section set to 10/5/60 that is:

10 minutes for "Minutes to check back for rain to set icon"
5 minutes for "Minutes to check back for recent rain (i.e. prior to the above setting)
60 minutes for "Minutes to check back for its stopped raining"

I changed this to 10/5/10 - didn't help

Can anybody help me with this problem?

Thanks in advance.

Hugh

most likely you have set the icon to use the solar data
in the solar setup
do you have a solar sensor?
also, which version of WD?

I am using version 10.37o build 00.

I am using the solar sensor to set the icon but I have ticked the box that says:

"Set the weather icon (unless raining) from the solar data"

... and the problem occurs when it's raining...
