I've not experienced or have even heard of anything like that.
I recall the posts from Leandro in Puerto Rico, who watched a hurricane ramp his 5n1 wind speed up to 95 mph before the wind cups ripped off. No loss of signal, before, during, or after.
Keep watching this and reporting. Maybe we'll figure it out.
The most common cause associated with signal loss and wind is tree branches swaying in or near the line of sight. It can be particularly bad if it is in full-leaf and the leaves are wet.
Other than that, it's hard to say what might be going on.
Same issue here, Also when ever it storms icon flashing rain/lightning, signal will go out, here in MI were getting high winds and rain my signal went out when icon started flashing. Storm icon stopped flashing I got my signal back.
There's no interference this is a known problem with this display a flaw..
I had to chime in on this issue. As Dan mentioned the loss of signal is not a wind or a wet leaf, branch, battery, line of sight, etc., etc. problem. The source of the lost signal is a flashing weather icon on your display. The icon by flashing on the display is causing interference with the signal from the sensor. How? I don't know. Something in the electronics. I have experienced this type of signal loss on two different display models. Others on this forum have also. Warranty claims have been filed and some displays replaced however, the problem continues. The weather icons that flash are usually accompanied by stormy weather and wind.
Immediately after the icon stops flashing (it actually changes to a non-flashing icon) the signal will re-establish with the sensor. Nothing in the immediate physical vicinity of the sensor or the display changed. Only the display weather icon stopped flashing.
Everything else on the display works fine and I have pretty much accepted the fact when the weather icon starts flashing my display readings will be compromised. I have a second different model display paired to my 5 in 1 that does not have flashing weather icons. So, I am good to go when wind and stormy weather hits.
What surprises me here is that the loss of signal on some display models due to a flashing weather icon is a known problem to AcuRite yet, no mention of that possibility is made in their comments.
