Anyone else ever have wacky readings like that?.


Check the WeatherLink logs and see if you can find anything strange, to receive 904.8mm would be impressive but usually it would be to do with the gauge swinging a lot with the wind. But it may be some sort of possible interference.

But definitely check the logs for yesterday and see if it has been recorded there, it'll also pay to scroll right to the end of the logging list and it'll show the TX Reception as a percentage.

Has something like this happened before?

Yer decent squall line just after midnight for sure, way to end a decent system. Lashed by heavy rain and hail.

Winds peaked 91km/h at home and roared up pretty quick, reckon less than 10 seconds it went from 40 to 91.

21.4mm system total, decent fall for the year. To put things into perspective, 22.2mm fell in April over the entire month.

23.2mm all up from that system. Fingers crossed for more like that in the coming months.
