About the 5-Day Weather Forecast
This weather station includes AcuRite’s NEW precision 5-day
forecasting technology.
By determining your geographic climate region and observing sets of
weather related variables, like changes in temperature, humidity, and
barometric pressure, this AcuRite Weather Station can accurately
forecast the weather for your exact location. Preprogrammed regional
weather patterns combined with data collected by the wireless outdoor
temperature and humidity sensor allow for forecasts that include
probability of precipitation, amount of cloud cover, and high/low
temperatures for up to 5 days.
5-Day Forecast Region Selection
For the 5-day forecast to function properly, you will need to select your
general geographic region. The 5-Day Forecast feature analyzes
outdoor temperature, outdoor humidity, pressure changes and
geographic region information to give you the most accurate forecast
breakdown a single station forecaster can provide.

Atmospheric Pressure
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. Also called
barometric pressure.
The weight of the air mass, or atmosphere, that envelopes Earth
exerts pressure on all points of the planet's surface. Meteorologists
use barometers to measure this atmospheric pressure (also called
barometric 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 inches). 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 forecaster features a current barometric pressure
display, as well as a trend arrow icon (rising, falling or steady).
These two features can assist you in forecasting changes in the
weather.

CALIBRATION
If you find that the temperature and/or humidity is slightly off, this
weather device allows for calibration. The forecast may be
calibrated as well. To calibrate the weather station, you must enter
into the calibration mode.
Calibration Mode
To access the calibration mode, press AND HOLD the “4 “ and “Y”
buttons together for at least 5 seconds. After 20 seconds of inactivity,
the display will save your adjustments and automatically exit
calibration mode and return to normal operation.
Calibrate the outdoor temperature by pressing the “ 4” or “ Y”
buttons. Note the arrow icons indicate if you are calibrating the value
above or below the uncalibrated raw temperature coming in from the
sensor.

-— pe > no calibration
| LJ m=) (actual sensor reading)
Outdoor Tull a calibration -
Press the “ 4 ” button to confirm your calibration changes and move
on to calibrating the outdoor humidity, the indoor temperature, and
indoor humidity in the same manner.
After calibrating all of the temperature and humidity values, the
forecast is the final item to be calibrated. If you feel that the forecast
could be “dialed in” to be more accurate- you may 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
may want to remove 10% of the moisture from the forecast equation
to start with. Press the “4” or “ Y” buttons to remove or add
moisture to the forecast. Note that the forecast graphics will change
accordingly. Calibrating the forecast may take some trial and error.
Note that just like any weather forecast - the forecast can never be
100% accurate.
Note that all calibration changes will be lost if you reset the display
unit or remove the batteries.
