AcuRite Forecasting: Focused Sensor Data Collection

5 in 1 sensor how it worksSo, is it supposed to rain, or not? Weather forecasting agencies, like the National Weather Service, create forecasts based on a set of observations and computer models collected from reporting stations that may be hundreds of miles from where you live. Due to the large area covered by these forecast models, a 40% chance of rain means there is a 40% chance of rain at any given point across the entire region (see the National Weather Service explaination of “Probability of Precipitation”).

In other words, your local weather meteorologist is forecasting for thousands of people (millions if you live in a metropolitan area) spread out over great distances. Quite frankly it’s practically impossible to get the forecast right for everyone in a given TV or radio market. When it comes down to it, an 80% chance of sunshine means that someone, somewhere usually gets rained on.

But what if you had a meteorologist in your own backyard whose weather report was tailored specifically for you? What if you could enjoy accurate forecasts specific to your exact location? Well, now you can!

Unlike regional weather predictions from sources like the news or online, AcuRite weather forecast products rely on sensors that collect organic data right from your backyard. AcuRite's sensor based weather stations track specific sets of weather related variables, like changes in temperature, humidity, and barometric pressure to generate a forecast with pinoint accuracy personalized for your location.

So go ahead. Plan your day with confidence!™ Invite your friends over for a barbecue, ride your bike to the coffee shop or set a tee time armed with a reliable 12-hour forecast generated right at home. It’s more than accurate, it’s AcuRite.™
