I just started getting them and I'm not quite sure what to make of it.

Everyone around me has higher than analyzed barometric readins like mine.  Some are way higher, none are closer.

I'm not sure if I just need an adjustment or what.  Everything else appears to be close.


All you need is Time, Aptitude and Desire ... and you can build just about anything...

you can set  a baro offset under setup, control panel, barometer offset and rainfall, to get your reading to the correct MSL reading needed

but you can just as easily add a solar-powered fan for a few dollars.

It might not work very well at night though!

Been on a business trip so couldn't reply...

I'm lucky in that I have lots of stations really close by to look at. Two are <1.5 miles. It does look, however like your baro offset on the station should be adjusted just a little bit up... around 2 millibars.

Temp looks good though.

And Chris... that's why you buy a solar-powered flashlight and shine it onto the panel!  :lol: And also why I wired mine to electricity. One could come up with a fancy 12V rig with solar battery charger... but that takes more effort and money.

Today the average wind speed is 20-30 mph (32-48 kph)  8O so that little fan I have isn't helping a whole lot.
