I have noticed that my weather station, a V2 Pro, is obviously and seriously overestimating rainfall totals lately. For example, today, my manual gauge has recorded just under 8mm so far today, but the V2 is reading 23.4mm. Rainfall has been consistently light all afternoon and eving but is currently registering at rate of 10 to 12 mm/ph. Each registered tip is still the usual 0.2mm to 0.3mm each cycle etc but happening on a scale that is way too frequent for the type of rain that is falling.
I've read up on 'reed switches' etc, but it's all too complicated for my simple mind. Anybody any tips or suggestions as to what might be going wrong? And would it be expensive to fix? Thanks in advance.
