The local meteorologist has nothing on this Professional Weather Station with Solar Powered Wind Sensor from La Crosse Technology. Accompanied by a thermo-hygro sensor, a solar-powered wind sensor, a self-emptying rain bucket sensor, the weather center assesses a host of climate conditions. The weather center LCD base receiver holds 3000 weather data sets, and displays: date and time in 12- or 24-hour format; forecast icon with tendency indicator; indoor/outdoor temperatures in Fahrenheit or Celsius; indoor/outdoor relative humidity percentage; wind chill, speed, and direction; air pressure; rainfall rate and totals; dew point; minimum/maximum values with time and date stamp; and historical weather graphs. Several weather alert alarms warn of storms or other problematic weather conditions.
The weather center’s remote sensors evaluate outdoor temperatures from minus 39.8 to 139.8 degrees F, wind speeds from 0 to 118 mph, and rainfall from 0 to 393-3/5 inches. From a distance up to 164 feet, the wind and rain sensors transmit data to the thermo-hygro sensor. In turn, the thermo-hygro sensor communicates with the base receiver from up to 200 feet away. The base receiver can hang on the wall or stands on a tabletop. The sensors come with mounting brackets and hardware for installation. For data storage on a home computer, the weather center comes with a USB transceiver and the free download of La Crosse’s Heavy Weather 2800 Pro PC software (compatible with Windows XP, Vista, and Windows 7 operating systems). The transceiver communicates with the base receiver from up to 80 feet away. To power the weather center, the separate purchase of four C and two AA alkaline batteries is required. A limited one-year guarantee covers this item. The oak-framed base receiver measures 7-1/2 inches wide by 1-1/2 inches deep by 7-1/2 inches high.
