Stationed on the kitchen windowsill or packed along in a pocket, Oregon Scientific's John Deer weather station helps keep farms running smoothly, and urban households, too. This wireless long-range weather forecaster receives temperature and humidity data from up to three remote sensors (one included) and is equipped with a self-setting atomic clock that keeps perfect time on its own. The clock automatically sets itself to the U.S. Atomic Clock and displays 12- and 24-hour weather forecasts with kinetic movement icons depicting sunny, rainy, cloudy, etc. Sensors can be stationed up to 300 feet away and setup without the wire hassle. Place one in the barn, one in the greenhouse, and another in the field to monitor humidity and temperatures there. Barometric pressure trends are displayed as "rising, steady or falling," so you'll know where the weather is heading before that hike or day in the garden. The clock is equipped with a crescendo daily alarm with 8-minute snooze. The purchase includes a trusty John Deere Hat.

We've got one of these crazy WIFI rabbits, and every morning it tells us if it's going to be sunny, rain, or whatever weather is going to happen. We love the Nabaztag because it puts a cute face on what can be bad weather. This bunny can also teach you tai chi, read your e-mail, report stock market, pull RSS feeds and tell you the time. Nabaztag can move his ears, play music, talk and whistle, and his body can show off hundreds of colors and special patterns of light.

Claiming to be the only wireless clock that monitors the weather, projects the time/ temperature onto the ceiling or wall, and synchronizes itself automatically with the U.S. Atomic Clock in Colorado. We do find this wireless wonder very easy-to-read, and the digital multi-lingual display shows time in 12-hour format, date, day, temperature, and weather conditions using graphic icons. Projector rotates 180° for added convenience.

We recently saw this updated and rather large forecaster at Sharper Image. We have the 5 day version, and can see why covering all the days of the week in the 7 day version might be a good idea. The 7-Day Forecaster boasts a six- by six-inch screen, and will show "current conditions and an extended multi-day forecast for 150 locations in the United States." Also the 7 day has information about the UV Index, wind speed and direction, pollen alerts and air quality alerts. We like the updates - especially the wind speed - as it really can help to determine the true temperature. Also - having weather alert warnings should be a standard on any forecasting weather device.

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.

This might be the most amazing weather station for your home or boat I've ever encountered. Okay - seriously this is a nice graphical way to see what the weather is like out side, and figure out what type of attire you should have on or the women in your proximity. ”Weather Girl” dresses (and undresses!) to show you what to expect from playing on the beach to building snowmen! 15 different forecast icons, and indoor and outdoor temperature and humidity with min/max recording. The time is set automatically by radio signal. The Weathergirl weather station costs (~$70) from Nauticalia.

This is still our favorite home weather station that uses a data network to provide the forecast.

No wiring, computer, or television required.

Looking more like a weather egg than a weather water-drop, this weather station from Sharper Image features an illuminated LCD screen, forecast icons with color code; temperature (F°/C° indoor/outdoor); humidity (25% - 95%); maximum temperature and humidity; barometric pressure (24-hour); moon phase; and U.S. Atomic time and date; alarm clock setting. We like the easy to read display, and when we visited in-store we thought it was large at first, but the size really helps the readability from a good 10-15 feet.
- Includes outdoor sensor with 433MHz transmitter (runs on 2 AA batteries, order batteries separately).
- Hands-free infrared sensor — wave your hand within three inches to turn off the alarm clock and activate a five-minute snooze. Also illuminates the screen for five seconds.
- Plugs in with AC adapter (included).
- Can also be powered by 4 AA batteries (order separately).
The in-store model looks good. It's a bit
more red and more glossy.
