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.

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.

With this wireless professional weather station, you don't need to rely on the blow-dried dude with the polyester sport coat. You ...get complete information in one source. The station displays all the key measurements of current conditions: The current indoor temperature (from 32F-139F) and outdoor temperature (from -40.8F-139.8F), making it suitable for Antarctica, Death Valley and all points in between; Barometric pressure, which is the key number to understanding what's coming; Wind speed (up to 110 MPH), direction and wind chill, which is a key measurement when the winter winds are howling; Dew point, and relative humidity for your location, which is crucial data because it's not the heat, it's the humidity. Weather history at your fingertips: The weather station collects up to 140 historical weather data sets, providing the ability for you to look at trends going back several months. Forecasting capability: The weather station provides 3 forecast icons with a tendency arrow for barometric pressure, which is the key number to understand what's coming. User-selectable alarms: If a storm is coming, the weather station warns you with a choice of alarms, including warnings of an impending storm; wind speed; high/low temperatures; and high/low humidity. As weather changes, you'll know what's happening. Accurate, capable recordkeeping: The weather station records total and 24-hour rainfall through a connection with a wireless, self-emptying rain bucket, with a range up to a Noah-like 78.7; if totals are that high, you might want to consider an ark. Understanding the storm that's passed: The weather station also provides a 12-hour history graph with min./max. time and date records; min./max. dew point time and date; and a max. wind gust speed. More than weather: The weather station also functions as a timekeeping device, featuring a day, week, month or year calendar and 12/24-hour time, and it also works as an alarm clock with crescendo alarm. The complete solution includes a wireless sensor with up to a 330ft. transmission range, allowing you to place the sensor in a variety of locations on your property.
