Incorrect daily Rain amounts recorded after rebuild
« on: December 06, 2018, 04:44:21 AM »
Hi guys, after my rebuild, my station is reporting 0.3mm of rain every day, when in fact, we've had no rain in several days.

How do I fix this?  It's really perplexing.

Thanks!
Dan

FYI

I noticed your raindetails totals are huge too.
April 30 2017 shows 1300 mm of rain.

Possibly.  It's been cold enough in the mornings where the dewpoint is dropping below -4C but you'd think at that temperature any dew there was would be frozen.  Right now there is 0.00 mm of rain, but I'll keep my eye on it when the temperature rises.

We've had dew points below zero all day today, and there haven't been any 0.3 mm of rain recorded, so I guess that's what it must have been.  Thanks for the quick reply.  Consider the topic closed.  :)

I'll try to fix my rain for that one anomalous day back in April 2017.
