Is there a UV sensor in the 5-in-1 sensor array?
I don't recall seeing anything about a UV sensor when I was shopping for the weather station.  But as I look at Wunderground, I notice that my weather station lists UV.  Did I miss this in the documentation or is this just added to on Wunderground.

The Acurite 5 in 1 sensor doesn't have UV built in. The reading you are seeing is from Wunderground.

The 5n1 has no UV or light intensity sensors, but they will be standard on the Atlas.

The UV reading you currently see on wunderground is taken from some other source.  When your station is properly sending UV data, you will see a time-graph like you do for everything else.

Hello Gregory,

The five in one does not have UV but as George stated the Atlas series will have these features. Please let us know if there is anything we can do for you.
