If you have fairly recent version of the software, I show the raw sensor data. This isn't of much direct usefulness, but does help isokate the issur to either sensor data or a firmware issue. This is most likely the former, but the data also may give a hint if it is the actual pressure sensor or temperature sensor that may be off. 

Assuming it is a sensor issue, isolating which one won't help a whole lot, but at least will confirm a replacement sensor will fix the problem before you go buy one.

If you tell me the data values and reported BP when you know the readings are bad, I can confirm what the expected BP will be given those readings. It may take until the weekend though, I am currently out of the country on a business trip.

Would there be any reason why my baro pressure readings drop drastically
during the hot part of the day and return to normal in the late afternoon?
 They seem to change inversely to my (inaccurate) temperature readings.

Take a look at KD4Z-7

I see I have 943mb readings today with no hurricane to explain it!    My
pressure sensor is located inside the house.  The outside temperatue
reading is obviously still using the sensor in the WS-1.   Still trying to
get it to use the temp sensor in the humidity sensor instead but that is
another story.
