Hi everyone.
Ive been running the above WS for 6 years or so with no probs. But the other day it suddenly announced that the outside temp had dropped to -21.4c momentarily. Anybody had this prob before? Could it be a Cumulus glitch? :?

It's quite common with Fine Offset stations, the Fine Offset section of the forum has many threads about this. Use the 'spike removal' settings on the Cumulus calibration screen.

If this is the first time it has happened to you, perhaps your transmitter batteries need replacing.

Cheers for that Steve, Ive had one or two silly readings over the years, one being Massive rainfall in the night. It turned out to be an Owl landing on the top and giving it all a good shake.
