Learning Mode:

Self-Calibrating Forecasting uses a unique algorithm to analyze changes in pressure over a time period (called Learning Mode) to determine your altitude.
After 14 days, the initial Learning Mode is complete. At this point, the self-calibrated pressure is tuned in to your location and the unit is ready for superior weather prediction. However, the station continues to self-calibrate for a full 33 days.


Weather Forecast:

AcuRite’s patented Self-Calibrating Forecasting provides your personal forecast of weather conditions for the next 12 to 24 hours by collecting data from the sensor in your backyard. It generates a forecast with pinpoint accuracy - personalized for your exact location.


Barometric Pressure:

Subtle variations in barometric pressure greatly affect the weather. This weather center displays the current pressure with an arrow icon to indicate the direction the pressure is trending (FALLING, STEADY, or RISING).


Heat Index, Dew Point, and Wind Chill:

To view a Heat Index, Dew Point, or Wind Chill reading, press the mceclip0.png arrow button on the front of the display. The reading will appear in the Indoor Temperature area. After 10 seconds, the Weather Select section will revert back to the indoor temperature reading.
