What is a weather station?

Weather stations are high-tech (and fun) weather instruments used by both amateur and professional meteorologists. Available in either wireless or cabled versions, weather stations provide a host of information about inside and outside temperature, humidity, wind speed and direction, rainfall amounts and barometric pressure.
Many weather stations also feature accessories such as self-emptying rain buckets, UV sensors, atomic clock and calendar, dew point and additional sensors to measure leaf or soil wetness, solar radiation and much more.
