Only Wind speed/dir on windrose displaying

Everything was working fine until a couple of days ago. On Sunday my pressure readings froze. They wouldn’t update on piconsole or the Tempest app. Sent a support request to Weatherflow but have not heard back from them. Today the only thing displaying is the windrose and direction/speed inside of it. I get this error in the log:

I am assuming this has to do with the pressure issue. Guess I will need to wait for Weatherflow to get back to me. I have only had this Tempest a couple of weeks. I hope this is not an indication of quality control issues. This is a screen grab of the Console. I’m working on a “light mode” mod and it’s not quite finished. This is hard coded for my needs, not a switch you can throw to change from dark to light. Still some work to be done.

What is your Station ID? You can also post the link that comes up when you click the share icon for your station.

My station ID is 31212

Found the URL

The sensor status is OK so I’m not sure what is up.

@eric can you check behind the scenes and see anything?

Don’t know what to check. Power cycled the Tempest then the Hub then the Rpi. Tempest app on the web and my phone shows no pressure info. Pressure Trend says “UNKNOWN”. Rain data is way off. Mesonet (2 miles away) shows we got .37 inches yesterday and the Tempest shows 1.05. I know rainfall can vary even a block away but it was pretty constant all around this area. Temp was off 6DEG C from our airport AWOS readings 2 miles away. Numbers on these sensors just don’t jive with what’s around me. Prior to the pressure not updating on Sunday the pressure for the last week or so was within .01 of the AWOS. Temp was dead on. Could I just have a bad Tempest? The SLP was the same on the 23rd and 24th, didn’t update for 2 days. I deleted data on the 24th if I remember correctly to see if that would correct it.

I am about to power cycle everything again but I don’t expect any change.

Nothing changed after I power cycled everything.

I had a look and double checked with Weatherflow. Your pressure sensor is ‘dead’ although it doesn’t show that (not normal neither that bug)

There is nothing we can do from forum. I think you did open a ticket with support ? They will come back to you but you could eventually already add this forum post so they don’t ask once more to check. You can tell Rob did confirm the sensor is dead.

For the other bug, he’ll try to hunt it down for a future release.

Sorry this happened to you but support will send you a new unit once they came back to you (hopefully soon)

The errors you are seeing on the console are because there are no pressure data. I’ll add some error checking code to the next version to handle this

Kinda figured that from the error. WF is sending another unit I think.
