What is a Weather Station & How Does It Work?

A weather station is a device which collects and reports environmental, atmospheric and weather related measurements.

This data is used to gauge current weather conditions as well as to make short-term weather forecasts. Some of your more full featured consoles have the facility to be connected to a computer where the data can either be stored for statistical analysis or uploaded to a web site.

A typical weather station includes a barometer, an anemometer and wind vane, a hygrometer, a thermometer and a self-emptying rain gauge. The majority of weather stations also include sensors to measure the temperature and humidity indoors as well.
