The AcuRite Lightning Detection Sensor includes the capability to monitor temperature, humidity, and lightning.
The Dashboard will update data every 5 minutes and will include the last data packet received within the 5-minute interval. The details of the readings displayed are provided below.
Your Forecast and Location Details are also displayed.
Temperature refers to the measurement of air in Fahrenheit or Celsius.
Temp High - the highest recorded temperature reading in the interval of time being viewed.
Temp Low - the lowest recorded temperature reading in the interval of time being viewed.
Humidity, or relative humidity, is the ratio of moisture in the air as compared to the maximum amount of moisture the air can hold, which varies depending on the air temperature.
Humidity High - the highest recorded Humidity reading in the interval of time being viewed.
Humidity Low - the lowest recorded Humidity reading in the interval of time being viewed.
Dew Point is the temperature at which the air becomes fully saturated with water vapor (i.e. 100% humidity).
Dew Point High - the highest Dew Point measurement in the interval of time being viewed.
Dew Point Low - the lowest Dew Point measurement in the interval of time being viewed.
Lightning is the occurrence of natural electrical discharge of very short duration and high voltage between a cloud and the ground or within a cloud, accompanied by a bright flash.
Detects lightning strikes within 25 miles (40 kilometers) and enables a lightning strike counter and estimated distance to the latest strike.
