Comments about Product: I bought this for my husband who loves to keep track of what the weather is doing and what is about to happen. He was soooo thrilled with it and still is 3 months later. He is always checking it out to see what to expect and it is very, very accurate. I am very pleased with this purchase and would recommend it to anyone interested in weather.
Comments about Product: We live in the New Mexico mountains and have VERY variable and extremes of weather.
We now can keep track of rainfall, winds, temp and are getting a good idea about the patterns, or lack of, to which we are subjected and what to expect.
We never would have believed it really got to -34 last winter, unless we saw it on the system.
