load cell

Funky weight readings

I have set up two hives with load cells (correctly this time) using aluminium frames. But the weight seems to track with temperature. As a test, i have a third system on the bench and I'm also seeing strange results under no-load conditions - wild fluctuations in weight. The two live systems are OldBrickFarm-NatHive1 and m2-NatHive. I have looked around on the hivetool.net site and found a few other that kind of follow the same pattern. I know that the bees will tend to go forage when the sun is up and the temps are higher, but a 50 lbs change seems a bit much.
