I am still struggling with my weather station. For whatever reason, the temperature dips far too low at night, and perhaps a little too high during the day. However, this only happens sometimes.
I am working on parsing through the data to see if I can find a trend. For example, on June 25, 2017, things were working well, when I compare the data to what would be reasonable for June in New Mexico:
However, just one day earlier, the temperature mysteriously drops into the upper 20’s:
I thought that perhaps the weather station was losing units, but 30.4 C = 86.7 F, which is discontinuity as well, even if it is more believable. Without the passage of a really strong warm front, the temperature wouldn’t rise that quickly at night.
I did notice that during the day, EasyWX (software provided with the weather station) had no data during this jump, versus the good data coverage on the 25th. I don’t remember if I was resetting the station at this time. Perhaps I was, and that was the reason for the poor data.
It seems to happen frequently, so I will investigate this matter some more over the remainder of the summer.
Thank you for reading my post.
