For avid nature lovers, boaters, or coastal dwellers, 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.
This unit also includes a wind sensor, powered by the wireless outdoor transmitter that sends data back to the weather station. The main display reports the current wind speed in miles per hour as well as via a bar graph in the Beaufort Scale. It records the maximum wind gust record in a 128-second time period. The weather station presents the current wind chill and remembers the maximum and minimum chill values for any set period of time.
For added convenience, the weather station has an alarm clock with a 12- or 24-hour time mode, snooze feature, a calendar that displays the day of the week and numeric month and day, and a United States map icon that identifies your current time zone. For precise time- and date-keeping, the gadget has a built-in antenna system that receives signals from the WWVB radio transmitter in Fort Collins, Colorado, which is in turn is regulated by the atomic clock. The wireless weather station requires three AA batteries for the receiver, another two for the remote, and mounts on a wall or rests on a table for readouts. This unit is covered by a one-year warranty.
Now you will be able to monitor the wind speed and wind chill with this home weather station. In addition to the wind, this unit also measures indoor temperature/humidity, outdoor temperature/humidity, dew point, forecasts the weather for 12-20 hrs in advance, and has radio controlled time/date.
