I am now looking for a weather station but not sure what to get. I do have a 40 foot tower I can put it on. I was not thinking of putting it that high ... maybe only 10-12 feet to clear the house. What say you and what is a good model? Thanks!

I really like my Acurite Atlas. I have the anemometer extension which allows you to separate the anemometer to its proper height around 30 feet. I also have the lightning detector which is pretty darn accurate.
It'll report to myAcurite as well as Weather Underground, but the only downside to it is it does not report to the other sites. I believe the software Weather Display has an option within it that now decodes the Acurite data to allow it to report, but I haven't messed with it yet.

Hi.... There are a few models and organizations. The genuine 'huge canine' is Davis Instruments. A large number of their units are more and better; can peruse wind to 200mph, the Ambient I believe is simply acceptable to 90mph. Aat 200mph you need to stress over your actual establishment, and regardless of whether the PWS itself will blow away. Some Davis models refreshes each 2.5 seconds, Ambient has customizable occasions, think dig is set for speediest of 16 seconds. A large part of the Davis gear is higher-dollar.
I went with Ambient Weather, their online use is great, their dev group is doing a ton of updates (essentially somewhat recently). They send firmware refreshes, you can refresh it with your telephone. I got an Osprey primary sensor (it works with a few diverse indoor control center), and got a WS-2000 indoor control center. There is a more established one WS-2902 (befuddling) that has less channels of information. There are more established ones yet that are less expensive. They have a great deal of control center, here except if a mix unit, these still need open air sensors.
