Overview
Introduction
The AcuRite Weather Station uses patent-pending Precision
Forecasting to provide your personal forecast of morning, noon &
night (4-hour, 4 to 8-hour and 8 to 12-hour) weather conditions.
Precision Forecasting combines North America's regional weather
patterns with data measured by a sensor in your yard to generate
the most accurate forecast for your exact location.
The indoor display console features a liquid crystal display (LCD)
and sensors for measuring barometric pressure, indoor
temperature and indoor humidity. The outdoor sensor is
completely wireless and contains sensors for measuring outdoor
temperature and humidity.
The bold, easy to read display console screen includes indoor and
outdoor temperature and humidity, barometric pressure history,
and a self-setting clock and calendar. Intelli-Time clock and
calendar set themselves instantly to the correct time and date, and
adjust for Daylight Saving Time.
The outdoor sensor features powerful wireless technology, low
battery indicator light, and an integrated hanger for easy
mounting.
Itʼs more than accurate, itʼs AcuRite.

Placement
Weather Station Placement
Precision Forecasting
Once setup is complete, choose a suitable location to place the indoor
display console and outdoor sensor:
Initial Learning Mode
The forecast will not display predicted high or low temperatures for
the first few hours after powering on. During this initial learning
mode, the weather station will observe changes in your weather
patterns and gather the data needed to generate your precision
forecast.
Placement of Display Console
Place the display console in a dry area free of dirt and dust.
To ensure accurate temperature measurement, place out of
direct sunlight and away from heat sources or vents. Console
stands upright for tabletop use or is wall-mountable. Adjust
display tilt to your preferred viewing angle.
Placement of Sensor
The sensor MUST BE PLACED OUTDOORS to observe outdoor
temperatures. Sensor must be placed less than 330 ft (100 m)
from the display console. Sensor is water resistant and is
designed for general outdoor use, however, to extend its life
place the sensor in an area protected from direct weather
elements. To ensure accurate temperature measurement, place
out of direct sunlight and away from heat sources.
Forecast Display
Precision Forecasting provides the weather forecast for the next
4-hour, 4 to 8-hour, and 8 to 12-hour time periods. Precision
Forecasting continuously analyzes your sensor data and updates the
forecast icons and high/low temperatures accordingly.
The weather forecast icon will display one of 18 different weather
conditions. The moon will show (as a simplified Moon Phase) instead
of the sun when the forecast time period occurs overnight.
Below is an example of a few forecast icons:
There are 2 placement options for the sensor: Hang using the
integrated hang holes, or use string (not included) to hang
from a suitable location, like a well-covered tree branch.
Prevent Wireless Interference
This weather station uses wireless radio frequency for data
communication, which is susceptible to interference from electronics,
large metallic items and thick walls. To prevent interference, place both
the display console and the sensor at least 3 feet (.91 m) away from
appliances (TV, microwave, radios, etc.), large metal surfaces, thick
stone walls, etc.

TROUBLESHOOTING
Barometric Pressure
Problem
Barometric pressure, also called atmospheric pressure, is defined as
the pressure at any location on the Earth, caused by the weight of
the column of air above it. At sea level, atmospheric pressure has an
average value of one atmosphere, and gradually decreases as
altitude increases.
The weight of the air mass, or atmosphere, that envelopes Earth
exerts pressure on all points of the planet's surface. Meteorologists
use a tool called a barometer to measure atmospheric pressure. At
sea level the atmospheric pressure is approximately 1 kilogram per
square centimeter (14.7 pounds per square inch), which will cause a
column of mercury in a mercury barometer to rise 760 millimeters
(30.4 in).
Subtle variations in atmospheric pressure greatly affect the weather.
Low pressure generally brings rain. In areas of low air pressure, the
air is less dense and relatively warm, which causes it to rise. The
expanding and rising air naturally cools, and the water vapor in the
air condenses, forming clouds and the drops that fall as rain. In high
pressure areas, conversely, the air is dense and relatively cool, which
causes it to sink. The water vapor in the sinking air does not
condense, leaving the skies sunny and clear.
This weather station displays the current barometric pressure, as well
as a pressure indicator arrow of the trend (rising, falling or steady),
pictured below. The multi-variable history chart also tracks and
display the changes in pressure for the last 12 hours (-12, -6, -3, -2,
-1, 0). The chart allows you to monitor the rate of change over time.
These features can assist you in forecasting changes in the weather.

Possible Solution(s)
Relocate the display console and/or the outdoor
sensor. The units must be within 330 feet (100
meters) of each other. Make sure both units are
placed at least 3 feet (.91 m) away from electronics
that may interfere with the wireless communication
(such as TVʼs, microwaves, computers, etc).
NOTE: It may take up to 20 minutes for the display
console to re-synchronize with the sensor when
batteries are replaced. Use lithium batteries in
sensor when temperature is below -4ºF (-20ºC).
Make sure the A-B-C switch selection in the battery
compartments of both the display unit and sensor
match each other.
Batteries may need to be replaced.

for high/low
The Precision Forecast will not display predicted
high or low temperatures for the first few hours
after powering on or resetting. During this initial
learning mode, the weather forecast will collect
data to learn your weather patterns.
Precision Forecast
is Inaccurate
If the forecast seems wildly inaccurate, make
certain that your geographic region is selected
properly. The geographic region selection can
drastically affect the accuracy of the forecast. See
“FORECAST CALIBRATION” to learn how you
may fine tune and improve the accuracy of the
forecasting feature.

REFERENCE
FORECAST CALIBRATION
Forecast Calibration Mode
Precision Forecast Geographic Regions
This weather stationʼs forecasting feature can be calibrated. If you
feel that your personal forecast could be fine-tuned to be more
accurate you can calibrate the forecast to be less or more “wet.”
Essentially, calibrating the forecast will either reduce or increase how
much moisture is present within the forecast software algorithm.
For example, if you feel the forecast is showing rain too often, you
can remove 10% of the moisture from the forecast equation. To
calibrate the forecast, you must enter into calibration mode.
To access the forecast calibration mode, press AND HOLD the “ ”
and “ ” buttons together for at least 5 seconds. NOTE: After 20
seconds of inactivity, the display will save your adjustments and
automatically exit calibration mode and return to normal operation.
Press the “ ” button to remove moisture from the forecast. Press the
“ ” button to add moisture to the forecast. Note that the forecast
graphics will change accordingly. Calibrating the forecast may take
some trial and error.

TIP: if you are on the border of two geographic regions, choose the
region that most fits your geographic region and weather type. You
may want to try both regions (try for a minimum time frame of a few
days for each region selection) to see which region selection
provides the best forecast for you.
