Weather Forecast:

While connected to Wi-Fi, weather forecasts for today and tomorrow are downloaded from Dark Sky. Dark Sky is one of the most accurate sources of hyperlocal weather information. It is backed by a wide range of weather data sources, which are aggregated together to provide the most accurate forecast possible for a given location. With down-to-the-minute forecasts, you’ll know exactly when conditions will change so you can plan your day.
If the weather station is not connected to Wi-Fi, the forecast is generated using data from the outdoor sensor. 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 self-calibrated pressure is
tuned in to your location and the unit is ready for superior weather prediction.

 

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:

Dew Point is continuously displayed next to the Barometric Pressure reading in the lower-left corner. Next to the Dew Point reading, you will either see the Wind Chill or Heat Index. The reading displayed is dependent on the outdoor temperature. 

Heat Index calculation displays when the temperature is 40°F (4°C) or higher.
Wind chill calculation displays when the temperature is below 40°F (4°C).

 

Rainfall Tracking:

The Today and Week rainfall totals are always displayed. The Month and Year totals are displayed alternately beneath the Week total.

 

Wind Speed:

Average Wind Speed- displays the average wind speed reading from the last 60 minutes.

Peak Wind Speed- displays a rolling value showing the highest wind speed recorded within the last 60 minutes.

 

Wind Direction:

Solid Arrow- Current Wind Direction

Dashes- Previous Wind Directions in descending order of brightness. (The most recent direction will be the brightest dash and so on.)

Arrows are located where the wind is coming from and pointing where the wind is blowing to.

 

Direct to Wi-Fi Setup:

Direct to Wi-Fi Weather Station Setup

NOTE: Troubleshooting Wi-Fi Connection

If you see “Wi-Fi NOT SETUP” by the Wi-Fi signal indicator, this means the router has not been set up or the setup was not successful. Please perform the steps above again.

A red “x” below the Wi-Fi signal indicator means the Wi-Fi signal has disconnected but is already set up. Ensure that the sensor is still connected to the display and that other electronics between the display and router are not causing interference.

 

Calibration:

AcuRite Atlas® (7-in-1) Rain Calibration

See above to calibrate values on the display.
