New Temperature / Humidity Sensor Installed

The temperature and humidity sensor in my weather station began to fail last week, so I ordered a replacment. It seemed that the temperature readings were okay, but the humidity was way off. Anyway, the replacement sensor arrived this afternoon and I have installed it. While I had the station in pieces, I gave it a thorough cleaning. It had not been cleaned since the spring of 2007. Upon inspection of the station, I noticed some corrosion on the rain collector sensor. I imagine that will be the next part in need of replacement. All the pieces are back in place now though and the temperature/humidity sensor seems to be working just fine now. Hopefully, the station will last for many more years to come.
