AcuRite Delivers the Best-in-Home Weather Forecasting to Help Navigate this Holiday Season

Lake Geneva, WI October 20, 2011 – AcuRite, the leader in precision temperature and personal weather reporting and forecasting instruments, has redefined at-home weather monitoring and forecasting. AcuRite is the perfect holiday gift or travel companion for the people in your life that seem to have everything, except an accurate weather forecast.

AcuRite products provide the most dependable forecast anywhere. Unlike traditional forecasts that may use data from hundreds of miles away to predict the weather in your area, AcuRite weather stations offer advanced Focused Sensor Based Forecasting technology.

This unique feature utilizes a sensor that collects organic data right from the user’s backyard. The sensor tracks specific sets of weather-related variables, such as changes in temperature, humidity, and barometric pressure to generate a personalized forecast.

“Weather is hard to navigate during the holidays, but AcuRite’s personal weather monitoring and forecasting tools will help take the guesswork out of gifts for loved ones. AcuRite has something for every family this season,” said Jon Balicki, president and COO, Chaney Instrument Co.
