Summer can be the best time of the year, so don’t let the weather ruin your plans. Plan your day with confidence to maximize your summer fun with help from AcuRite! A pro 5-in-1 weather station from AcuRite will help you keep an eye on the temperature, humidity, wind direction and speed, rainfall, and pressure in and around your home this summer. Knowing when to take action when these measurements change is the key to maximizing your summer!
(1) Escape the Heat with Indoor Activities
Did an excessive heat warning ruin your outdoor plans to the park or soccer field? Opt for a trip to the mall instead. There’s usually a (free) kids play area in the nice and air-conditioned mall. Or if the kids are older, take them to the movies!
(2) Sip on Electrolytes
Pay attention to the humidity and Feels Like temperature reported by your weather station. There truly is a difference from a hot muggy day versus the same temperature experienced in a dry climate or “dry heat”. In high humidity, our bodies have a harder time cooling itself by sweating, so we feel hotter. Alternatively, in dry climates we aren’t even aware we are sweating so it’s important to get extra electrolytes from drinks like Gatorade, Propel, or even SmartWater. When the humidity is high, make sure to drink plenty of water and keep your kids cool by heading to the pool or waterpark!
(3) Don’t Get Caught in the Rain
Did the kids talk you into inviting the neighborhood kids over to camp in your backyard tomorrow night? Don’t get caught in the (heavy) rain! Use a pro 5-in-1 AcuRite weather station to see just how wet it is outside. Better yet, connect it to AcuRite Access and setup alerts in the MyAcuRite app to be alerted via text when your weather station detects a certain amount of rainfall.
(4) Know When to Take the Party Inside
Strong winds can ruin a camping trip, or something as minor as a backyard picnic or BBQ. Monitor the winds in real-time (and impress the neighbors) with up-to-date wind speed and gust measurements once those paper plates start blowing around! You may want to bring the party into the garage or kitchen if you have the space.
(5) Better Understand Your Comfort Threshold
Many people with migraines or joint pain already monitor the minor or drastic pressure fluctuations. An AcuRite 5-in-1 weather station displays the current pressure reading pressure trends, so you’ll know if the pressure is falling, raising, or remaining steady. Just have a minor headache or mild arthritis? Use the data from your weather station to better understand your comfort threshold.
