Just got my new weather station. My humidity indoors says 1%. Is that feasible? I’m in NC and it has been very cold and dry outside. Thanks just didn’t think it could go that low. It does appear to be working, it went up over 40% befor.

I am looking at a RH chart used with a Sling Hygrometer.  Yes, at lower (dry bulb, what your sensor reads) temperatures.   What was the temp reading at the time

Hello Bob,

Are you continuing to get the 1% humidity? What is the model number of your weather station?

Our humidity doesn't read properly. Is this a common problem? How can we fix it?
