I know weather can affect things but probably for the most part, it wouldn't make much difference on my rides, as long as I set it before I start. Like I said, most of my hills are short so there isn't much time for change.

However, that one 5 mile climb takes almost an hour and since it is moving into the mountains, where most of the rain gets dumped here, that one may be affected.
Minimum resolution means the smallest measurment it will display is 10 feet. I generally climb a thousand feet or more on long rides, so 10 feet is not important. For example 1255 ft is displayed 125 (x10).
