Much like Rome, AcuRite wasn’t built in a day! The journey of becoming North America’s #1 Weather Station Brand began in 1943 when John L. Chaney started Chaney Instrument Co. in Lake Geneva, Wisconsin. To celebrate this milestone, we’ve released a line of limited-edition 80th-anniversary products that commemorate our past and put a fun spin on products to use in the future! Without further ado, read up on the special products after the jump!

The Ko’olau Mountains Watershed Partnership recently installed an AcuRite Atlas weather station to better grow native plants and provide insight to helicopter pilots — all to help protect native Hawaiian forests and the fresh water they provide.
With Memorial Day 2023 in the rearview mirror, and as our 80th anniversary year moves into June, it’s safe to say that summer has arrived! Whether it’s your favorite season or you’re counting down the days until the winter solstice, summer is here; and it’s bringing its pastimes with it. Warm weather, beach days, hiking, camping, and of course — cookouts! Yes, summer cookouts — or barbeques, as some like to call them — are an undeniable part of American culture, just like AcuRite!
