This morning I was surprised to see that my Open Air disagreed dramatically with my LaCrosse outdoor thermometer by 10 degrees F!
The outdoor temperature was just below freezing (31°F) but the Open Air reported 41.5°F. I double-checked, and the Open Air was in shade, so it wasn’t a matter of direct sunlight heating the enclosure.
Then, looking over the past week’s data, where we’ve had multiple nights below freezing, I discovered that the Open Air has never reported a temperature below 41°F.
Perhaps it’s generating too much heat to provide accurate temperature measurements in colder settings given its enclosure? There probably aren’t too many freezing nights in Thailand, so I can understand why this might have been missed…
Or maybe it’s just mine?
