Oregon Scientific manufactures some of the best weather stations on the market. I am partial to their WMR968 wireless weather station. The console sits at the corner of my desk. The easy to read console displays 20 different weather conditions. More than enough for your weather information desires.

All Oregon Scientific weather stations are easy to set up. I think a weather station needs to be wireless with solar battery charging. Check to make sure the model you order has this feature. Oregon Scientific has basic weather stations for under $50. They are functional, sturdy, and provide the most common weather data points: temperature inside and out, humidity inside and out, time, rain gauge, etc.

Oregon Scientific has several models that will suit your needs at the next price point. The WMR90 Pro, WMR100, and WMR80 models stand out. These models have additional features/sensors: wind speed and direction, barometric pressure, and rain gauge. I like the self emptying rain gauge. All this for under $100 with a few models just over $100.

A professional weather station can run $1,000 and more. The Oregon Scientific top models are built to professional standards with loads of features for around $200. Some models are under $200; the WMR 200 and WMR968 models can hit $250 tops on Amazon.

Price is only important if the product lasts. I have several weather stations I use around my farm and office. I confess I am addicted to weather data gathering. I could have worse vices. Oregon Scientific has served me well over the years. I have never been disappointed by their products.

Where to Buy and Why

Buying a weather station, or anything for that matter, from Amazon is convenient, easy, and fast. Amazon’s free shipping beats running around town looking for a deal. Amazon’s guarantee and return policy protect you if a product fails or is damaged in shipping.

The best thing I like about Amazon is price. The vast footprint of Amazon leads to the best price to be found anywhere. Then throw in free shipping and there is no competition.

The unique selling structure of Amazon allows the manufacturer and resellers to compete on price and quality. You can check price at several seller once you find the weather station you want.

I added several selections of Oregon Scientific weather station around this article. Feel free to check out Amazon’s vast selection of Oregon Scientific weather stations and order today. You can have your weather station delivered to your doorstep in a few days. And think of all the gas you will save.
