Some say you need a crystal ball to predict the weather, but we'd rather have a Crystal Weather Station. The upcoming Oregon Scientific Crystal Weather Station has laser engraved 3D icons in crystal with colour highlighting and a radio controlled digital clock. You can also change the mode of the Crystal Weather Station by waving your hand. The mode will then change from time to indoor temperature.

We really like the weather stations that use the MSN direct service. Why? Plug it in, and you're done! No sensors, no set up, no hassles. The Oregon Scientific Weather Now weather console uses the MSN Direct service to receive regional weather information without the use of any outdoor sensors, and updates its content every two minutes.
For the first time, get real-time, 4-day weather forecast information to plan your day and week ahead. By just plugging in the weather station within specified MSN Direct coverage areas, you can receive regional wind, rain, temperature, humidity, chance of precipitation and even NWS warning information..

This Oregon Scientific weather station features a modular design that lets you put different displays in different locations around the home or office. So, if you want the uber weather dashboard on your desk with everything - you can have it, or you can break the weather modules apart and spread your weather information throughout the house where you want it. There are four compact monitoring instruments that can be used separately or bracketed together.

- The Rain Gauge accurately measures rainfall and then empties on its own so there's no running out to the yard between storms.
- The indoor module displays daily rainfall and records nine days worth of rainfall data.
- The Thermo-Hygrometer measures outdoor temperature and relative humidity. All this with an elegant Scandinavian design, too!

Checking the plastic rain gauge oftentimes means a trip out to the garden, in the rain, and then a lot of record keeping. A great way to stay abreast of the garden's irrigation needs without getting wet, Oregon Scientific's wireless, remote rain gauge features a self-emptying rain cup that measures and then dumps collected rainfall. Nine-day memory and indoor/outdoor temperature readings help monitor precipitation and weather patterns over time. An automatic a wireless transmission range of up to 300 feet with the rain gauge and up to 100 feet for the thermometer means a lot less back-and-forth. The unit displays daily readings, 9-day histories, and total rainfall records. Rainfall measurements are shown in inches or millimeters. The gauge also features a high rainfall alarm, comes with two AA batteries for the gauge and two AAA batteries for the sensor.

We're still looking into getting one of these for boating this year and we like the features and the price. The Oregon Scientific WR103NX All-Hazards Emergency-Alert, Weather Radio automatically activates when a weather alert is broadcast, and gives you time to take cover if you need to. Employing S.A.M.E. (Specific Area Message Encoding) technology, it screens out broadcasts originating in distant locations. That means you can monitor local counties only and receive just the info you really need to hear. This state-of-the-art weather radio from Oregon Scientific packs plenty of punch but weighs less than a pound and easily fits into a coat pocket. With easy-to-read, LCD display, backlighting for viewing at night or in low-light conditions.
