5 in 1 shows humidity at 99% every night. I've checked other PWS in the area and they are not reporting the same

Interesting. It's possible that without the fan running, as the sensor cools and condensate forms on it.

Hello AJS,

Does this only happen at night, or during the day as well? How high do you have the sensor mounted?  Do you notice this at a specific time of the night? Thank you. Have a good day!

Yes it is only at night. It is mounted 15" off the ground, image of station can be seen in the link above. There is no particular time. I think Rick has a valid point that the fan stops at night and condensation is affecting it. I may move one of my humidity sensors out by it to see if I get the same readings.
