Those in the market for a desktop weather station know that the products available range from basic to industrial, and the prices range from pocket change to investment option. Almost all weather stations include base modules that fit comfortably on any desktop, and display a comprehensive well of data at a glance. The trick is finding a home weather station in your budget that tells you just what you need to know--with as few bells and whistles as possible.

The Main Types of Desktop Weather Station

Though there is a range of features for desktop weather stations available, most fall into two categories. First, there are the weather stations that give you only the basic facts, usually temperature and humidity data. With this information, prepping for a nice afternoon out is easy, grabbing what you need from the closet and not having to lug around cumbersome "just in case" clothes.

Secondly, there are weatherstations that will present you with an onslaught of technical information. These products cover just about every aspect of the weather. While they're great for industry, science classes, and enthusiast use, they can sometimes be a little too dense for everyday use. If you just need the simple facts, like how hot or cold it is outside, then a simple weather station might do the job.

For the weather-curious, though, there's nothing better then having an expanse of meteorological information at your fingertips. Professional desktop weather stations make forecasts, collect rainfall information, and even display UV readings. If you're looking for a product that can give you an accurate, in-depth look at the weather in your neighborhood, be sure to look at the professional models that are available.
