DHT22 in the rain?

When DHT22 is installed outdoors: do I have to cover it from direct rain?

Thanks!

Eugene,

Your readings will be a little off if the sensor is completely immersed, but as soon as it is out of the water it should recover quickly. Obviously you will want to protect the leads that go to your micro-controller, and the controller itself, but your DHT22 should be fine if exposed to occasional rainfall.
Respectfully,
