We've just received the Oregon Scientific WMR200 Professional Weather Station. It's quite amazing and we'll have setup pictures very soon. So far - we are really enjoying it - the setup was really easy, and getting all the wireless data points set up was a snap. The display is also a touch screen - so you can set it in your lap and just enjoy some weather data. More soon.

Long range transmission of 300 feet (100 meters) at 433MHz between the main unit and remote sensors
Main console features touch-screen controls and EL backlight
We visited Sharper Image over the weekend, and spotted the Oregon Scientific Crystal Weather Station. The crystal weather station is really impressive in person. The crystals of sun, rain, and clouds look pretty amazing, and the display is also very clear and easy to read. The heft of the crystal weather station is also impressive, and we think this is one of the best looking home weather stations we've seen.
Remember those late nights in your youth where you would turn to your local station and see images of a barometer, temperature gauge, etc. spinning endlessly, telling you the local weather? Now you can have your own dedicated weather at home 24 hours a day. This home weather station connects to your TV and provides an in-depth readout of the current conditions around your home. An included temperature, rain and wind sensor can be placed around your yard, and wirelessly broadcasts the data collected back to the base station in your house.
Your personal home weather channel will have details on:
current temperature inside and outside
wind chill factor
The receiver will also calculate a forecast based on weather trends over the past 72 hours, and it's only going to cost you $129.99.
Want to add a new interface to your weather station? This cool article in italian will show you how.
[Fickara] sent in his AVR interface(in Italian) for an Oregon Scientific remote weather station. Thanks to the AVR, data is output via RS232. There are quite a few less expensive weather stations - usually PC output models are over $100, so this could be pretty handy. His page has several other projects including an oscope clock, POV on a stick, etc.
Featuring radio controlled time, date, calendar, weather forecast, moon phase, indoor and outdoor temperature and humidity, barometric pressure and various alarm settings for different weather conditions, the easy to read Lacrosse WS-9119U weather station is pretty stunning. We like the blue-back-lit display, and the different readings plug intelligent weather forecasting for snow and fog is pretty interesting.
Multiple Weather Alarms:
Radio controlled time and date (can be set manually)
Hour, minute, and second display
Weekday, day, month and year display
Current moon phase
Indoor temperature with MIN/MAX records (ºF or ºC)
Indoor humidity (%RH) display
Outdoor temperature with MIN/MAX records (ºF or ºC)
Outdoor humidity (%RH) display
Display data from any one of up to three possible wireless outdoor temp or temp/humidity sensors
All MIN/MAX records show date/time and can be reset
Humidity data with MIN/MAX records
Current barometric pressure (hPa or inHg)
Barometric pressure bar chart history (last 36 hours)
The Power of Science Build Your Own Weather Station Kit is really meant for kinds in grades 4-6, but we think we might want a piece of the build your own weather station action. This kit will let kids build their own weather stations and study temperature, map reading, barometric pressure, humidity, wind speed and direction.
Oregon Scientific's Wireless Weather Forecaster displays 12- and 24-hour weather forecasts, monitors indoor and outdoor temperature, and sets its integrated clock to the US Atomic Clock signal for precision time. Set up the main console indoors where it's convenient to read, and set up the remote, wireless sensor anywhere indoors or out to measure temperature and humidity from up to 100 feet away. Sunny, rainy, and cloudy weather conditions are depicted with easy-to-read graphical icons. The wireless sensor features an LCD display that shows temperature and humidity levels wherever it's stationed. And, since the clock automatically sets itself to the U.S. Atomic Clock, it never needs adjusting for Daylight Saving Time.
This build your own weather station is a little hard to come by but we found it at Amazon.com. You can follow easy instructions to build six weather sets! Observe and record weather and environmental conditions. Designed to help children understand weather conditions and changes. Instead of just reading about energy or forces, the Capsela motorized building system allows kids to handle interlocking parts, create motors, and see for themselves how energy changes with the help of visible gears and wheels. Every kit contains an easy-to-follow activity booklet introducing physical concepts such as energy changes, electric circuits, motion energy, friction and traction, buoyancy, and electric circuitry. Capsela Weather Station contains 40 interlocking parts including a rain gauge, sundial, compass, wind speed and direction indicators.
We've been looking into smaller companies that provide high quality weather stations for your home or business. We like the fact the sensor on the Davis 6152C weather station has an integrated rain, humidity, and anemometer. The sensor is also housed in a standard radiation shield which gives for better temperature readings. This system is also cabled instead of being wireless, which should give it better all-weather performance.
