Review: Handheld Weather Forecaster with Alarm Clock from Oregon Scientific

We've been using this personal weather forecaster around the house, and on various motorcycle rides throughout New England this Fall. In a nut shell - the unit is roughly the size of a cell phone, and provides a 12 to 24 hour forecast and local temperature and humidity readings. The forecaster also doubles as a travel alarm clock with a crescendo alarm and snooze function, and has a belt clip for trekking around.

The Oregon Scientific EB313HG Handheld Weather Forecaster with Alarm Clock

One of the various uses we've found around the house is to get a humidity and temperature reading wherever we put it. Just yesterday we used it to find several drafty spots in our basement that needed caulking. On our motorcycle trips, we used it to see if the pressure was trending down and if rain was on its way. Overall, we think this is a very cool - very small - personal weather monitor for where you are at any time.
