What's the history behind weather stations?

Early farmers relied on crude weather instruments to predict the weather and help them grow their crops. Farmers of yesteryear used simple tools including weathervanes placed on top of a barn or plain buckets sitting in a field which caught rain and provided the farmer with rainfall measurements.
Weather stations have advanced tremendously over the years and now feature state-of-the-art technology and reliable accuracy!
