Even though you can’t control the weather, it definitely pays to be aware of what it will be like before making any sort of plans. A good way to do that besides following weather reports is to get your hands on your very own weather station. These devices are designed to follow certain metrics in order to provide you with the type of forecasting that will help big time in the long run.
With this in mind, you could very well invest in a wireless weather station because at the end of the day, they’re among the most affordable outside professional tools. Why don’t we then delve into the world of weather forecasting devices and find out what are the ten best wireless weather stations money can buy.
10Amir Wireless Weather Station
This is a digital thermometer at its core, but a very complex one with a clock and built-in wireless weather station. Designed to update data every 35 seconds via an outdoor transmitter, this weather station will always keep you posted on how the weather is like outside. Thanks to its accurate sensors, it can show both outdoor and indoor temperature, humidity, weather forecast, and comfort levels along with the time and date.
9AcuRite 00613A1 Indoor Humidity Monitor
AcuRite’s 00613A1 Indoor Humidity Monitor isn’t just capable of accurately displaying the indoor humidity but temperature as well. Given its affordable price, you cannot really expect it to come packing too many features, yet the ones it is capable of are engineered perfectly. What’s interesting about this device is that it has a tabletop and magnet-mountable design that allows you to set it up pretty much wherever you want.
8La Crosse Technology WS-8117U-IT-AL
This Atomic Wall Clock with Indoor/Outdoor Temperature sensors isn’t your average wall clock for obvious reasons. Not only can it accurately display the indoor/outdoor temperature but it also shows you the moon phases as well. At the same time, its brushed-aluminum atomic clock has time, date, and temperature functions, features that are radio-calibrated for accuracy to within 1 second along with automatic self-adjustments.
7La Crosse Technology S88907
A good wireless weather station has to be easy to use above everything else and this is exactly the department in which the S88907 from La Crosse excels. It is designed to monitor not only indoor but also outdoor temperature through a wireless sensor capable of also displaying air humidity with great accuracy. Also, it features temperature alerts for both indoor and outdoor changes in temperature along with a self-setting time & date clock for good measure.
6Oregon Scientific BAR208HGA
This particular weather station from Oregon Scientific features among others an atomic self-setting clock with time zone offsets and a month/day calendar, indoor & outdoor monitoring capabilities with sensors that can measure temperature in 3 different locations, and the ability to provide weather forecasts along with weather warning messages according to heat, the wind, storm, fog, and frost levels.
5AcuRite 75077 Weather Forecaster
Equipped with a big display that accurately shows not only the weather forecast but the indoor & outdoor temperature as well, this device will make it easier for you to keep track of how the weather is like even when you’re just passing by. It also features a self-updating atomic clock that updates time with split-second accuracy while keeping track with daylight saving time. Its most impressive feature, however, is the 12 to 24-hour weather forecast which displays 14 different icons in order to help you plan the day ahead.
4La Crosse Technology 308-1414B
La Crosse Technology 308-1414B is a wireless atomic digital color forecast station designed to accurately display both the indoor and outdoor temperature, the time, date, and air humidity in a clear fashion. It also includes temperature alerts for both indoor and outdoor changes, which may prove useful in the lung run. Perhaps its most interesting feature, however, is the full color LCD display that features icons for every type of weather possible.
3Ambient Weather WS-10 Wireless Indoor/Outdoor Weather Station
Simple to read, use, and quite affordable, the WS-10 Wireless Weather Station from Ambient Weather might just be what you need if you live in a fairly large house. We say this because it comes with not one but three sensors which when combined with the console’s thermo-hygrometer will display the weather and weather humidity very accurately. Speaking of the console, it can remotely read and update up to eight remote therm-hygrometer sensors while its audible alarms will inform you of any drastic changes in temperature both indoor and outdoors.
2AcuRite 01512 Pro Color Weather Station
AcuRite’s 01512 is as close as you can get to a professional weather station while still benefitting from the user-friendly nature of commercial weather stations. Equipped with a high-precision 5-in-1 sensor, this weather station will display the temperature, humidity, wind speed, wind direction, and rainfall with maximum accuracy. Furthermore, it benefits from a weather ticker that streams real-time data including the moon phase, indoor comfort levels, temperature, and a lot more.
1Davis Instruments 6250 Vantage Vue Wireless Weather Station
This particular weather station is perhaps the most advanced money can buy, which explains why its price is considerably bigger than most of the stations we talked about so far. This being said, this self-contained weather monitoring system features an Integrated Sensor Suite, an LCD console, a 4.3-inch LCD display with a glow-in-the-dark keypad, and a lot more.
We should also point out that it has a wireless transmission range of up to 1,000 feet, one that updates every 2.5 seconds to provide perfectly accurate readings. Given the fact that it can report weather conditions, indoor & outdoor temperature, humidity, barometric pressure, wind speed & direction, dew point, and rainfall along with weather forecasts, we can safely say that you aren’t likely to find a more professional weather station outside government-run facilities.
