The weather station is located in the eastern of saudi arabia and since yesterday we hade very bad sandstorm and the rain gauge is reporting some precipitation (.8 mm dust accumulation of 2 days). is this normal or something wrong with my station?
The tipping buckets in the 5 in 1 do not know the difference between rain or sand all they know is something is filling them up and causing them to empty. So it is either sand filling them up or the whole sensor is rocking in the wind. After this storm you may need to clean out your sensor.
