Title: Vantage vue Reporting Rain When It's Not
Post by: IHateHail on April 02, 2013, 07:19:37 PM
Today my VV started to report rainfail.  That would be fine.  If it was raining!! :?

Thinking it may be a big hairy itsy spider hiding from the down spout \:D/

Will check next opportunity.

Rain collector is probably clogged and just allowing accumulated water to drip through now.  Time for Spring cleaning!

Snow melt? It's happened to me before.

I should be able to get on the roof tomorrow and check. 
It's been averaging 9C for daily highs the last few days and today it hit 17C.  :?
I'll bring my camera and if there are any creepy crawlys making a new home I can document it.  :-)

I had this problem as well. I called Davis and they said it was likely a problem with the transmitter board. They sent me a replacement ISS since it was under warranty.
