Why do I get different readings

Why is My AcuRite and weather Underground and console all have different readings. I did try calibrateing the temp by -2. Maybe I’m going the wrong way. Thank you for anyone that takes the time to comment.

Jim looking at your three examples, they are all close and the differences may be do to when the readings were sent and how often the sight updates or refreshes.

Hello Jim,

I can see that the display has a wrench icon next to the temperature reading. This means the outdoor temperature has been calibrated on the display.  The display calibrations will not transfer to my AcuRite or Weather Underground. Any adjustments need to be done on the PC Connect software.  My AcuRite automatically updates every 5 minutes, your display temperature updates every 36 seconds, and PC Connect to Weather Underground updates every 36 seconds. You can see a difference in readings due to the updating time intervals.  Please let us know if you have any questions. Thank you.

Ya I screwed up the temp calibration when I went to calibrate my pressure. I never adjusted the temp in calibration mode how can I get ride of the wrench? Is there away without out rebooting the display. Or how do I calibrate the temp reading on my pc acurite would i calibrate it to -2 on the weather calibration for example or would it b +2 is wu and My AcuRite are reading to degrees colder

Hello Jim,

You would need to remove whatever calibration you entered on the display. So lets say you entered +2 degrees you would have to adjust it back to what it should read. Once that is done the wrench icon will disappear without you having to reset your display. You can do the same for the pressure calibration as well. If you would like to enter a calibration you would need to do it on the PC Connect software for it to transmit to Weather Underground and My AcuRite.
