My weather station prediced it would rain, but this didn't happen. Why is that? Verified
The prediction on the weather station is based on air pressure. In general low pressure means bad weather and high pressure means good weather. It's possible the weather pattern develops differently than the air pressure predicts.

What is the best location for a weather station and its sensors? Verified
The weather station itself is placed inside and needs to be kept away from heat sources such as the kitchen, windows or electrical appliances. A separate outside temperature sensor needs to placed in shadow and at least 1,25m above the ground. A rain sensor needs to be placed in an open area where it can always collect rain. A wind sensor needs to be placed in an open area too, with any obstacles influencing the wind.
