Hi Josh,

This unit uses a Precision Forecasting algorithym, it may take up to 14 days for the pressure to calibrate to your location.  Be sure you have allowed the unit to run for this 14 day period, as during this period while the pressure is still calibrating, you may not receive correct forecasting.  You may also want to check and make sure you are in the correct Geo Zone for you location.  Please find a link below with the weather forecast icons for your unit:

Please let us know if we can be of any further assistance to you!

Hi Josh,

It does continue to calibrate for a total of 33 days, in general after 14 days it should be close enough to predict forecasting based on the conditions it is calculating.  It uses the temperature, humidity and rise and fall of the pressure to determine the forecast.  If you are on or close to the border of two different Geo Zones, you may want to try the next closest one.  If you feel it continues to predict inaccurate forecasting you may want to completely reset the unit as indicated below and allow it to go through the learning mode again.

• Verify you are using standard alkaline batteries such as Rayovac or Energizer. Lithium batteries can be used in the outdoor sensor if you are in a location that will frequently see temperatures below -4oF/-20oC. (Rechargeable batteries, as well as batteries that indicate a heavy-duty quality are not recommended, and may cause irregularities.)
• Verify that you are using a fresh set of batteries. The battery expiration date should be at least 6 years out. Batteries can lose 3% of their power or more every year in storage.

1. Bring both the sensor and display unit indoors and position them side by side.

2. Remove all batteries from both the sensor and the display unit. (If the display has an AC adapter, please unplug this, as well, to completely power down the unit.)

3. Locate the A-B-C ID switch inside each battery compartment. Make sure that the two parts are set to the same position. Please change both parts to the next available letter on the ID switch, as this can help to reset the unit.

4. Reinstall batteries in outdoor sensor first. (Please be sure that the red light on the front of the sensor blinks, as this will assure that the sensor is powered on.)

5. Reinstall batteries (and/or reconnect AC adapter) to the display last.

6. Let both sensor and display sit side by side to establish connection. (Leaving the devices side by side for 30 minutes will allow you to verify accuracy by comparing the indoor and outdoor readings shown on the display. For accuracy standards, please visit http://www.acurite.com/accuracy.)
 
7. After a connection has been established, the sensor can be placed outdoors.

Please let us know if this resolves this issue, or if we can be of any further assistance to you!

ok i understand about doing this to make sure they are both reading the same temp. but

if the moisture setting is not accurate you will still not get the forecast right .

now i have reset everything and let the outdoor sensor sit by the main unit for 1/2

an hour and the moisture and temp from the outdoor sensor is about 2 degrees off

comparing from the indoor base unit

Hi Josh,

This is correct, leaving the sensor and the display side by side to compare the temperature and humidity readings is always recommended.  The temperature accuracy standard is +/- 2 degrees F.  The humidity accuracy standard is +/- 5 percent.  It sounds as though your units are reading within these accuracy standards.  Typically humidity sensors take 1 to 2 hours to acclimate to their conditions. 

For more information on accuracy standards: http://www.acurite.com/accuracy

You will want to allow the unit to run for the 14  day period in order for the pressure to calibrate for your location.  Please let us know if you continue to experience forecasting issues once this 14 day period has finished.
