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.

Barometric pressure bar chart history (last 36 hours)
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.
Not only does this weather station have a full-color display, its also easy to operate. Photo image animations are brilliantly displayed with accompanying sound effects. This multi-channel station monitors temperature, humidity, and automatically sets itself to the U.S. Atomic Clock. Advanced settings such as photosensitive dimmer and weekend alarm settings included.
Forecasts the weather 12-24 hours in advance with three levels of pressure and temperature indicators: Rising, Steady or Falling. Displays indoor and outdoor temperature and humidity, and provides comfort level and heat index indicators. Sets itself to the US Atomic Clock signal resulting in no need to ever adjust for Daylight Saving Time.
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.
This wireless weather station--equipped with a remote wind sensor--is a direct line to sudden changes in weather. The station reports the temperature in Fahrenheit and Celsius, plus relative humidity for indoor and outdoor locations via a remote sensor. For more accurate outdoor readings, the base unit can receive information from up to three different sensors that can each be placed up to 80 feet away. The weather station records minimum and maximum temperature and humidity readings within a 24-hour period, and recalls them at your prompting. In addition, it has an indoor comfort level indicator that uses happy or sad face icons to let you know if the temperature is at a comfortable level. One of three forecast icons on the LCD displays weather predictions based on changing air pressure, and is about 75% accurate for any 12- to 20-hour time period. The device also shows the current moon phase (of 12 possible phases) and the dew point.
We're not so sure about the creepy person icon, but the La Crosse Technology WS-9611U Wireless Sun/Moon Weather Station with 15 Advanced Forecast Icons helps you prepare for your day and decide what to wear. So maybe this tells me I need matching boots with my ensemble? This unit also displays sunrise/sunset for 99 cities along with moon phase. In addition, it displays indoor temperature and humidity, and outdoor temperature. Time is set by the U.S. atomic clock.
