Weather station suggestions + Help

Recommended Posts

Hi guys

I got a Fine Offset WH2080 for Christmas and was very happy with it, loved the USB feature being able to update my twitter and use Cumulus, all was going swimingly until new years when the Anemometer packed in. A few questions

1) Is the reliability of this model good or are there common problems? Reviews seem fine on the internet

and 2) I have a budget of around £200, however if it was a really good one i could squeeze further than that, im really looking for one with USB connectivity however this is not crucial, i notice the Davis Vue is very good but without the pc interface at base cost.

If anyone could help me i'd be very greatful, would love to have a station set up for the potential of mid january onwards

Thanks in advance

      I realised we talk a lot about the weather generally, on here and across the UK but one thing that is rarely mentioned is the UV index so my first question is; Do you guys know whether we have ever recorded a UV index of 9 here in the UK? 
      I see many places as far north as Nottingham will be hitting 8 next week provided there are clear skies and many times I've known the UV to hit 8 in London, most years we get atleast 7-10 days I'd say but surely somewhere on the south coast will have hit 9 on a few accasions.
      I also regularly check www.temis.nl which gives a clear sky UV index forecast which over many years I've come to realise is generally is out by 1UV. They are forecasting 7.5 in London next week which if I'm right would mean 8.5 and surely the south coast could hit 9 by that reasoning? Any thoughts or facts would be interesting to hear. Thankyou

      Hello everyone!
      I own a Hama EWS-180 temperature meter which has a wireless sensor to measure the outside temperature. The only place I could place it was outside on the grass and today someone mowned the lawn and along with it the sensor :/ I've searched but couldn't find a replacement sensor to buy, so do you have any ideas where can I buy one?

      I was wondering if anyone can offer some advice on how to solve a problem with the temperature gauge on my weather station?
      I have one of these https://www.maplin.co.uk/p/maplin-professional-solar-powered-wi-fi-weather-station-n23dq and the temperature sensor seems to have gone.  It's currently reading 19.5c, when actually it's 11c.  It has been like this for a few weeks, so I contacted Maplins to see if they could direct me towards spares, as it is out of warranty.  
      They have come back via email today saying they do not keep spares or know where to get them from.
      Any advice on spares or how to get it working?
      Thanks in advance

      Hi all,
      A retired police constable turned climatologist claims snow will fall all over the UK this winter! I talk about this in more detail on my blog here but thought I would put it in general discussion as well  
      The Met Office have already spoken up and said that he doesn't use a scientific way of forecasting and that winter will be cold, it's winter. Ha.
      Anyway he goes onto say that Christmas day will be snowy for the north but no luck for the south. Apparently though the south of UK will see large amounts of snow into the new year and temperatures will drop into 5-. He says he is hardly ever wrong so who knows, we might be in for some luck here in the UK.
      I personally can only remember one year that we had amazing snow here in the south of the UK. It was great. Either way fingers crossed.
