Have you been invited yet to migrate to the new myAcuRite platform?  The forecast there is much better than with the old "My Backyard Weather" site.

I don't think so but did see that app and it wouldn't take. Said my device had to be registered when I put the device addr in. But it is if it's working in the orig app?

Hello Brian,

What are you seeing for your forecast?  You are using the AcuLink application?  If so, please verify you are on the correct Geographical Zone.  You will need to adjust this from a computer.  Once you are logged in on the computer you will see 'Settings' on the bottom right corner of the forecasting widget.  Thank you and have a great day!

Hi. I checked it and it is correct. It always seems to show a high percentage of rain in the forecast even on good days.

Hi Brian,

You may need to change your GEO zone to an other location for more accurate forecasting.  Sometimes removing moisture can help as well.  Have a great day!
