Except for Yearly Rainfall, all high and low registers are cleared automatically at the end of each period. Page Alarm Mode Current Weather mode. Alarm Mode The Vantage Pro2 features more than 30 alarms that can be programmed to sound whenever a reading exceeds a set value.
With the exception of barometric pressure and time, all alarms sound when a reading reaches the alarm threshold. The UV dose alarm does not arm unless the initial UV dose for the day has been reset. Once the UV dose alarm value is set, clear the accumu- lated UV dose.
