I’ve been using my WeatherFlow for about a month now. On two different days I’ve had 2 (each) false lightning strike reports.
Today the weather is totally clear, the temperature is in the 30’s (F.), and there is a steady wind of about 10 mpg at my house with gusts near 20 mph. Out of town, however, the wind is about double that.
My Air is located on a post that holds up my patio roof, about 5 feet off the ground. There are no nearby machines or motors running this afternoon, the natural gas water heater (in the house) is probably about 15 feet away and the same for our gas furnace, and its far too cold for anyone in our neighborhood to be running a grill. Relative humidity is 27% and the new point is 6.1° F.
I haven’t rotated the Air because, to be honest, I don’t want to turn it to a spot where the false reports happen more than twice a month.
When I looked at the data page (or whatever it is called when I click the to the alternate view from the tiles), my Air is reporting a Lightning Strike Count of zero and the Lightning Distance of just dash marks.
But I got a Lightning notification from both Weatherflow and IFTTT.
