It features a 3 inch color display, that shows the temperature and dew point inside and out using the remote sensor. It can also store max and min temps over a number of days, and show phases of the moon. We're not sure if they'll add a barometer or wind gauges, but we can always hope they might. This weather station is a first however, as it features a full color display.

The Weather Channel Projection Weather Station

51VKE9YKTWL._SL500_AA280_.jpg

From The Weather Channel, this home weather station shines the outdoor temperature and time on the ceiling or a wall from its side-ported projector. The radio-controlled clock regularly resets, adapting to changes in time zone and daylight savings time. With moon, tide, and barometric pressure gauges, the weather station also comes with forecasting capabilities. We love the blue backlit display, and you'll really like the large display to see the weather for the day across the room.

First Impressions: Oregon Scientific WMR200 Professional Weather Station

So far we've really been impressed with the Oregon Scientific WMR200 Professional Weather Station. The interface for the touch screen weather data is really quite well done - easy to read - and easy to navigate. The set up of the weather station was also pretty straightforward - it took about 45 minute to deploy all the sensors and set them up in our back yard. We'll have more details as we test, but so far so good.
