I’ve always been amazed by the weather and truth be told knowing what the weather can be pretty important when planning day to day tasks. Sure you could listen to the weather report on the news but believe me, its way more fun to have your very own weather station at home. I bought a cheap one ages ago and while it lasted it was a great gadget. Unfortunately the outside monitor stopped working after awhile and now I only have the inside unit, not so much fun.  :waiting:

That’s why I took the time to source another one that looks really good, especially from all the great reviews it’s been getting from all the satisfied customers. Great selling points are the ease of setting it up, at least for most people, and the data displayed. Most guys would love this baby.

  • Colors come as Black on Silver / Silver on Black . The wireless sensor installs just about anywhere (up to 300 ft line of sight, 100 ft under most conditions) to report on conditions in the greenhouse, garage, wine cellar or baby's room, places where proper temperature and humidity levels are crucial.
  • The weather station's main console displays a wide range of information in an easy-to-read format on a large LCD. The attractively thin console can be placed on a desktop or mounted to a wall.
  • The unit monitors indoor and outdoor temperature and humidity, outdoor dew point, as well as barometric pressure (both sea-level and measured), and features a pressure history chart to track trends.
  • The handy forecast icons let you know at a glance if it's going to be rainy, cloudy, or sunny based on barometric pressure trends.
  • Equipped with an atomic clock, time is set automatically via radio and in synch with the U.S. atomic clock for utmost accuracy. The clock also features an alarm with snooze and temporary back light for nighttime viewing.
