    Hi Keith,

    By default we use NOAA, which has a pretty good coverage but it's not hyperlocal. One possible solution would be to activate another weather service (like WUnderground or Forecast.io) and see if it gives closer readings for your location. We have many clients with "microclimates" that choose to use an extra weather service. 

    Maybe you can share your location so we can check NOAA reports with other weather services ?

    I already have WUnderground enabled. I mean, some of these are WAY off (like +/- 30 degrees) - this is NOT a microclimate issue.

    From Web UI you can see the data reported for each weather service (Settings-> Weather), with this information you can see which weather service reports bad data. Maybe you have a personal weather station selected that feeds bad data ?

    Either go with the browser to the device IP address or use https://my.rainmachine.com page (if you activated Remote Access service)
