Today, during an inundation from TS Isaias, I noticed again that my SKY is severely underreporting wind gusts. I suspect this is due to my unit being an early production model with no hydrophobic coating on the ultrasonic reflector plate. Obviously the plate was wet with today’s conditions.
Winds were constantly underreported during the event. I took a video of the outside conditions when the sensor was reporting 1-9 MPH gusts. Here’s a screen grab:
Local official sources reported gusts to 48 MPH.
Is there any fix here other than upgrading to a Tempest?
