That doesn't look fixable to me. That looks like a heck of a job even for someone skilled in SMD soldering. Probably best to find a replacement, not for the sensor, but for the station.

Well the temperature and humidity sensor is that little black square looking thing with a hole in the middle. Looks like a Sensirion SHT30 most likely. But the problem could be any of the other supporting SMD parts.

Digikey or Mouser. I'm in the US....don't know if that helps. But if you don't have the means or knowhow to do SMD soldering...then this fix is not for you.
