Types of Weather Stations

Weather stations have been around since dials enabled readings of outdoor conditions. Those old-fashioned versions are still available, but they share shelf space with more advanced atmospheric recorders. The newest weather stations help you figure out not only what current conditions are, but what they might be like in the next few days, too. If you're looking for a weather station, review the types -- manual, digital, and glass globe -- to find the right fit.

Weather stations have been around since dials enabled readings of outdoor conditions. Those old-fashioned versions are still available, but they share shelf space with more advanced atmospheric recorders. The newest weather stations help you figure out not only what current conditions are, but what they might be like in the next few days, too. If you're looking for a weather station, review the types -- manual, digital, and glass globe -- to find the right fit.

Manual

A more traditional take on the weather station, manual versions have dials that read outside or inside conditions such as barometric pressure and temperature.

Digital

Digital weather stations can be as simple or as technical as you like, with forecasts, time display, alarm functions, and even icons that indicate what to wear.

Purchase Considerations

Purchase Considerations

If you're looking for a simple purchase to tell you current conditions, then a basic weather station may be all you need. But there are more features and amenities that can add functionality you might find yourself enjoying and using. That's why you'll want to review these purchase considerations before landing on your perfect weather station. They include a humidity sensor, range, indoor/outdoor capabilities, and multiple units. Try this overview to sort through your options.

Humidity Sensor

A valuable function, especially in dry winter climates, a humidity sensor can help you determine whether to add artificial moisture to the air with a humidifier.

Range

Digital weather stations have different ranges, typically up to 100 feet. That will dictate placement of the unit as well as the accuracy of its readings.

Indoor-Outdoor Capabilities

Some weather stations have indoor-outdoor capabilities that allow you to more accurately determine conditions outside.

Multiple Units

Many advanced digital weather stations have secondary units; the main unit may be placed in an oft-used room such as the kitchen or living area. The smaller unit is a great addition to a bedside, allowing you to assess exterior conditions without leaving the comfort of your bedroom.
