Get the Info, Rain or Shine
Sometimes I think that the weather may be a little more important to farmers than to other people. I mean, everyone wants to know what the weather will be like every day. They want to know that common question, “Will there be rain or shine?” Farmers want to know how much rain they got. We want to know how much rain we’ve gotten this month. That’s why I’m so in love with our AcuRite Pro Color Weather Station with Pro+ 5 in 1 Sensor, PC Connect, and Bonus Lightening Detector.
This weather station does so much more than tell us ‘rain or shine’. It comes with the display with PC Connect for 5-in-1 sensor data, Pro+ 5-in-1 Weather Sensor, Portable Lightening Detector, mounting bracket, mounting hardware, power adapter, and an instruction manual. It’s easy to set up, and easy to use as well.
More Information than ‘Rain or Shine’
I get all the information that I need to know right from the display. It shows me the temperatures inside and out, as well as the dewpoint, how much rain we’ve gotten today, and in the past month. Even if I am not home, I can still know what the weather is like there. AcuRite has an app that downloads to my phone. It picks up my sensors, so even if I am in Oklahoma, I can find the temperature, wind direction, know if it’s ‘rain or shine’ and how much rain we’ve gotten. This is all important information when you live as close to the flood plain as we do! The display also has a memory that holds 2 weeks of information, that can be downloaded to my computer.
AcuRite has a wide range of weather stations and sensors to choose from. You can build your weather station a piece at a time if you need to. My kit came with a lightening detector that is my husbands favorite piece.
Hubby was hit by lightening before, so if there is even a threat of it, he’s jumpy as a cat in a room full of rocking chairs. This detector clips right on his pocket, and if there is a lightening strike within 25 miles it alerts him. It even tells you how far away the lightening strike was and how many strikes there have been. Trust me, he makes a bee-line for the house if lightening gets close.
