The author discusses how he is making weather measurements using his home weather station. Some of the measurements that he can make using his home weather station include, air and soil temperature, rainfall, wind speed and direction. The author shares why he decided to purchase the Davis Vantage Pro2 home weather station even if it is a bit pricey. He explains how the Pro2 works.
