There is something to be said for an analog weather system: pressure monitor, thermometers that measure minimum and maximum temperatures, a wind vane and anemometer, but logging this data would be a huge time sink.
This last week, we splurged and purchased a personal weather station. This little plastic gadget measures temperature, wind speed and direction, humidity, rainfall, UV, solar radiation, and barometric pressure. We also picked up some extra temperature gauges. These go into our greenhouse, cold food storage room, solar hot water heater tank, and other experiments we want to monitor.
You can have a look at the current and previous conditions in Cooksville by visiting our weather station on any number of websites and apps.
