[wxqc] Failing Baro L3 Spatial Consistency

Well, that's not true, you're not close to most of the nearby stations 
which is where the statistics come from and is why you're failing. Also, 
Wunderground is not going to match at you're elevation since they use 
MSLP. However, the problem isn't you, it's all the other stations in 
your area. Most of your neighbors have one problem or another. 
Unfortunately, all of that bogus data, collectively, looks good because 
it's the majority, which makes you the outlier. The QC can't tell right 
from wrong, it can only tell majority from outlier. In this case the 
premise on which it's predicated is invalid. Your fate is in the hands 
of the people around you.
