Barometer 'Incorrect'
« on: January 12, 2018, 03:37:37 AM »
Hello.

My weather station has a reading of 1009.5hPa at time of writing.

Weather Display is reporting it as 1029.3hPa.

Is this due to the height above sea level settings?

Something else?

The weather station is a La Crosse WS-2350.

Using WD 10.37S build 62.

I have no offset settings in use.

do you have set to use QFE barometer maybe, in the units setup, barometer setup?
WD does use the raw barometer reading from the console
maybe you have added a barometer offset on the weather station console

Offset on the console.
