It looks to me from all the entries that this is bug that has been needing attention for far too long a time.  Please fix this once and for all:

7:29 AM   38.4 °F      31 °F   75 %   East         2 mph         -- mph   29.82 in   0.01 in  0.02 in
7:34 AM 164.7 °F   99.9 °F  127 %  ESE  526.9 mph   526.9 mph   29.61 in      -- in  0.02 in
7:40 AM   38.5 °F   31.9 °F    77 %  East      2.2 mph   526.9 mph   29.61 in       -- in  0.02 in

This occurred this morning 3/23/17 and was posted to WeatherUnderground.  The middle line is where the errors are.  They contain impossible figures.  This issue finally needs serious attention.

I have the same problem. My 5 in 1 reads 158 degrees F and a wind chill of 149. This appears to be a common problem and the only apparent solution is to replace the temp and humidity sensor in the 5 in 1 Go to acurite.com, Accessories & Parts and locate the sensor. It costs about $9.00 and you can order it online.

Thanks, Ralph.  I'll give them a call.  The unit isn't even 3 months old yet.

Hello Mike,

What is the model number of your display? I can see the information registered on Weather Underground erroneously but did not register erroneously on My AcuRite. We may want to set up an RMA on the display. Thank you.

Thanks, Jennifer.  I already did that through Jill yesterday afternoon.
