Weather is many things. It is local, meaning where you are – not what’s happening at the nearest airport. Weather is also fascinating. It’s ever-changing, and it affects everyone. It’s important for many businesses and industries to have on-site, reliable weather data.
While nailing a sensor to the side of your company building might be a fast and easy way to go, legitimate wind and temperature measurements cannot be collected this way. Similarly, department store weather stations might be convenient and cheap, but you get what you pay for. On the other hand, high-end scientific data loggers are accurate, but they can be overwhelmingly sophisticated, complex, and costly.
The question, then, is if good quality weather equipment exists that does not require the writing of computer code or a complex engineering background. The answer? Absolutely.
