Rain Reported That Doesn't Exist - Not Happy

My 01036 5-in-1 reports rain that doesn't exist on My Accurite website and Weather Underground, but not on the panel.  It does this about two or three times a month.  For instance, on June 1, it reported 0.57" of rain in five minutes.  We would have had massive flooding if that occurred.  I already had the panel replaced under warranty for not downloading data to a file.  Now this panel reports rain that doesn't exist.  Of course, now is it out of warranty.  Of course.  Not happy.

I'm confused.  The above states that rain was NOT shown on My Acurite website, WU  but shows rain(?) on Display?

So MyAcurite.com 0.0
     WU 0.0
     Display is >0.0
?

The 0.57" in 5 minutes might have been delayed by poor communication and once communication was re-established the 5in1 rain counter showed the current value.  

Too little information in this post to understand the situation and more diagnostics need to be run locally to help.

Actually, it show rain on the website, but not on the display, so the communication between the display and the rain counter appears to be good.  The display is sending false data out to the websites.

so this Display is tied to PC to update website or you are using Hub/Access to send data to website?

I'm using PC Connect to send data from the display to the websites.  I've tried a different computer just in case that was the issue, with no change.

I just took a look at my weather stats for the past 7 days on My Acurite.

Highest Humidity = 127%  Yes, over 100% humidity!!!

Highest Barometric Pressure = 74.44 in Hg  Yes, twice the barometric pressure on earth.

Anyone else having this issue?
