Wireless Weather Stations – the New Age of Weather Forecasting

Wireless Weather Stations – the New Age of Weather Forecasting

Mankind has always had a fascination with the climate and its many vagaries  and this fascination has now been brought into our homes. with the popularity of the wireless weather station.
These nifty little gadgets keep track of temperature, air pressure, humidity, wind speed and direction, rainfall and even rainfall rate! And they also come with an inbuilt severe weather alarm to warn you of forthcoming storms. These alarms work on the principle that a sudden storm is preceded by a rapid drop in air pressure. Simple but clever. My alarm is normally triggered maybe once or twice a year, but if you live in an area renown for extreme weather a wireless weather station may prove to be very handy indeed.

More and more these stations are being designed to be aesthetically pleasing. The clinical electronic modern look can be replaced by a more retro design for the sentimental amongst us, but without losing any of the modern technology and functionality of course.

Wireless weather stations are ideal for use in the the office, looking far classier (in my opinion) than the desktop executive toys of the 80’s and 90’s. Professional weather stations have PC connections and related software. Wireless Weather Stations are very useful and are clearly the most convenient of all weather instruments. Radio waves transmit measurements from the remote sensors to the indoor display console, and this is the principle of wireless technology, which although very new is becoming an essential part of our day to day electronic living. Just look at the proliferation of wireless laptops.

A wireless weather station reads the indoor conditions as well as those outdoors. Some units are supplied with several consoles so you may locate them at various points around your home and garden.  The weather station is also an automatically updating clock and calendar. It’s great to have the ability to measure all these climatic conditions from one simple console. It doesn’t seem two minutes since Bill Giles and Michael Fish were plying their trade with magnetic stick on clouds and a certain amount of guesswork.

So while you sit in your favourite chair, watching the telly and eating a snack, enjoy the sound of the rain on your window and the wind in the trees in perfect comfort. Let us indulge our passion with the weather and become amateur meteorologists. I reckon we can now give the professionals a decent run for their money.
