The weather has been so strange recently, we never know what is going to happen. Stay alert and up-to-date on the weather conditions around you, no matter what time of day. The Oregon Scientific WR608 Desktop NOAA receives and displays National Weather Services weather bulletins, alerts, watches, and forecasts, U.S. Emergency All Hazards bulletins, and local Emergency Alert System (EAS) bulletins and warnings 24 hours a day.
The Radio can be programmed to receive information specific to your geographic area and with it you can receive broadcasts for up to nine different local areas. Alerts available in English, French and Spanish with three levels of messages: advisory, watch, and warning. More details at Amazon and Wind and Weather

This diamond-shaped Oregon Scientific Crystal Weather Station makes a unique weather forecaster/work of art combo for your home or office. It is designed to stand upright on a tabletop. The Station integrates Swarovski crystal elements into familiar weather symbols for forecast display, illuminating the appropriate crystal symbol in colored light to predict the weather.
The red sun signifies sunny, blue clouds represent cloudy skies, and green raindrops predict rain. On its left side, the weather station toggles between the atomic time and indoor and outdoor temperatures--a THN132 remote sensor is included. Wave a hand over the top of the weather station to manually toggle between the time and temperature information.

Nice to see Oregon Scientfic getting into the solar panel powered wireless device fray. The RMR500 Eco Clima Control gets three whole months of power after just eight hours in the sun. Retails for $99 - and can track up to four different temperature/humidity locations.

If you want to see all of Oregon Scientific's weather gadgets and accessories in one place, we just found out they have a store at Amazon. The store has a best sellers list, and also details on all of their products.

We've featured this weather wrist watch before from Oregon Scientific, but it appears to be available now. The Meteo Weather Forecast Watch tells you what the weather is going to be like over the next 24 hours. The watch features a reverse LCD display and stopwatch function. Four easy-to-read icons (sunny, partly cloudy, cloudy, and rainy) display the upcoming weather conditions in the next 12 to 24 hours

Take the guesswork out of the weather forecast by consulting the Weather Light - the egg shaped weather forecasting wonder. With just a glance at the Weather Light, you'll have the information you need to plan your day.
The Weather Light (why didn't they just say Weather Egg?) features three illuminated weather forecast icons, Sunny, Cloudy and Rainy, that will give you an accurate weather forecast for the day. A simple wave of your hand changes the display, shifting between the precise Atomic time, indoor and outdoor temperature. You can also set the Weather Light to "auto toggle display" mode, and the information will rotate automatically.

We're pretty excited to have our first Oregon Scientic product in the WeatherSnob Weather Shack to review. The Oregon Scientific WMS802 WeatherNow II with MSN Direct Service simply plugs in, and you're done! No sensors, no set up, no hassles. This weather station uses the MSN Direct service to receive regional weather information without the use of any outdoor sensors. Users can get real-time, 4-day weather forecast information, including the chance of precipitation. They can also receive current regional weather data, including temperature, humidity, UV Index and a unique “feels like” temperature reading that combines temperature and humidity into one easy reading. A radio-controlled clock/calendar also displays today’s sunrise and sunset information, all within a sleek blue case.
We'll have a full review soon.

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.

Finally a weather radio alarm clock that knows I'm around! Instead of displaying all information at the same time, this smart weather clock uses motion sensor technology to detect how close you are to the device before displaying select information. The current time, day and weather forecast display in large digits and icons when you are far away from the weather clock. As you approach the unit, the Weather In Motion switches to showing the indoor and outdoor temperature readings, while the time and weather forecast icons automatically reduce in size. You can also set to auto “scroll” mode and the display will smoothly shift the information every five seconds.
- Infrared motion sensor for display change (sensor detection range: 0.5 to 2 feet)
- Near mode—Displays time, indoor and outdoor temperature and weather forecast
- Far mode—Displays time, day of the week and weather forecast
- Displays indoor and outdoor temperature (up to 3 channels)
- Displays weather forecasts with graphical icons: Sunny, Partly Cloudy, Cloudy and Rainy
- Automatically sets itself to the U.S. Atomic Clock and adjusts for Daylight Saving Time
- User selectable 12-24 hour format clock with crescendo alarm with 8-minute snooze function
- Weekday selectable in 5 languages: English, French, Danish, Italian and Spanish
- Time zone settings: Pacific, Mountain, Central, Eastern
- Celsius or Fahrenheit temperature display

Thanks to Brett for writing in to remind us, but it looks like Oregon Scientific is recalling its Scientific Weather Radios because they may fail to receive National Weather Service Alert signals in certain regions of the U.S. — a failure that could jeopardize users' safety.
The recall, announced by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission applies to the following radios:
- All Hazards Portable Weather Alert Radio, model .
- Portable Public Alert Radio, model WR108.
- Public Alert Weather Station, WRB308.
- John Deere Public Alert Weather Station, WRB308J.
No incidents or injuries have been reported to the company.
The radios were sold in stores in the U.S., through online retailers and in catalogues from December 2005 through June 2007 for between $30 and $150 US. Consumers should not rely on the radios for emergency weather information and should contact Oregon Scientific for a replacement.

This cool and curvaceous clock not only looks good, but is easy to use and operate. The radio tower icon on the LCD screen lets you know your ExactSet projection clock is tuned in and receiving the super-accurate Atomic Clock time. Colorful design and split-second accuracy -- a combination of style and technology that is unquestionable!

We like the review of the Oregon Scientific WMR100/BOXTIT Weather Station Set and think we might have to find one and test it ourselves.
I have the Oregon Scientific WMR100 which comes with a rain collector, a combined wind/temperature/humidity sensor, a display unit, and various mounting hardware. I tested its accuracy in several ways, including pouring carefully measured amounts of water (from a rain gauge) through the rain collector, comparing the temperature readings with a very accurate thermometer, and holding the wind sensor out the window of a car at 40 mph. The results were impressive. I had previously tried these tests on a LaCrosse weather station as well as one from Radio Shack, neither of which was completely accurate. The Oregon Scientific WMR100 was right on the mark for measuring preciptiation, and also for temperature. The temperature was down to minus 15F one night, and lithium batteries still worked fine. The outdoor temperature sensor is slow to respond to rapidly rising or falling temperature, but this is probably a good design feature to avoid over-reaction to direct sunlight if it's not in the shade. The wind speed readings for 40 mph on the odometer ranged from 40 to 45+ on the display unit, but doing this out the window of a car may not be 100% reliable as a test! The display unit sits firmly on a table (well weighted in the bottom) yet is easy to use as a hand unit. It is a little inconvenient to have to scroll through the settings to see everything -- for example, the readings for rainfall, UV, and barometric pressure do not display simultaneously and it is necessary to use the control buttons to change between these settings in order to see them all. The manual is good in explaining everything. The construction is very sturdy considering that it's made of plastic, and the mounting pole is even metal. All in all I am very satisfied with it and certainly would recommend it over LaCrosse for a number of reasons. From what I would expect for something at this price, I would give it 5 stars.
