I'm gonna say that maybe the actual valve stem is malfunctioning due to cold, corrosion, or crud.

I would try a new valve stem core in the existing valve stem.

Is it possible that there is a bit of moisture on or in the sensor, valve stem that froze and affecting the reading of both the sensor and external gauges. A little heat buildup and motion would free it up
Maybe an argument for using 99.9% nitrogen (it’s apparently drier) than regular compressed air.
