About this product

What data can I view with this weather station?
This weather station will show you the temperature and humidity reading wherever you position, and by using the included outdoor sensor you can have the same information for external areas as well.

How do the weather alerts help me?
The weather alerts show you at a glance what weather to expect – whether its heat, fog, frost, rain or even wind, allowing you to wrap up warm where appropriate.

How does the radio-controlled clock work?
The weather station receives radio signals from the National Physical Laboratory in Middlesex and decodes them into displaying the correct time and date on the LCD display. This clock also includes a calendar function, allowing you to keep track of the date as well.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from I have not been able to get a full temperature reading from it, just local area. Indoor the reading not that good and needs a clear fresh signal as only half the screen temperature works OK, just local temperature active and needs to be in a better area for the best results but I will see what I can do and (take it for a walk) to clear air. I have others and they work OK and Even auto set them self.
