During the recent cold spell my DP dropped into the negative for a few days - as you'd expect with a cold Easterly. But it has continued to drop and now shows -36.4 with Humidity showing 3%. The temp looks right though and I believe the temp and humidity sensor is a single board in the sensor suite - so is this a broken board? I'm assuming so.

Most if not all stations calculate the dewpoint from the temperature and humidity. So if your SHT sensor is on its way then yes this will need fixing.

You will probably get more technical advice on the WXForum from more experienced Davis owners there.
