POINT PRECIPITATION DEW POINT Dew point is measured by the OUTDOOR HUMIDITY/TEMP SENSOR. The dew point temperature is derived from the outdoor temperature and relative humidity measurements. OUTDOOR HUMIDITY / TEMP SENSOR

POINT PRECIPITATION WIND CHILL

Wind chill temperature is measured by the WIND SENSOR and OUTDOOR TEMPERATURE SENSOR. It is calculated from wind speed and outdoor temperature measurements by the ULTIMETER weather station.

LOCATION

POINT and LOCATION Ideal Placement of your Gauge In open areas strive to be twice as far from obstacles as they are high. In developed areas strive to be as far from obstacles as they are high. In open areas place the gauge top approx. 2 feet off the ground. Make sure your gauge is level Distance from obstacles

In developed areas place the gauge top approx. 5 feet off the ground
