I'm not sure if the same thing applies to the WMR200 but I know fine Offset devices lock up from time to time. some fixes are to either add Ferrite cores to the ends of the USB console cable, or to plug in a Powered USB Hub between the Rasbpi and your Weather Station Console. Also using a shielded USB cable can help too.

are you sharing the USB port on the Rasbpi with anything else?

I had problems with the USBconnection between my WMR100 and the Raspberry3.
After I installed a powered hub between them last year, I have had no problems.

You'll always get lots of messages of that kind while reading data from this type of station because of the way MX reads the data; they are not indications of a problem and don't help with diagnosing the problem, unfortunately.
