Anyone on here got any recommendations for semi pro weather stations for home/business use?
Being a bit of a weather junky and having a Hotel/Motel that looks after lots of skiers/boarders in winter at the base of Mt Hotham I thought it would be cool to get a weather station that could publish weather data online. I have had a basic oregon scientific unit before and have found a few options online by them and more pro offerings by Davis. Does anyone on here use/recommend any of these and can you point an example of what they publish online?

Here's an example of what you can get via weatherunderground: https://www.wunderground.com/personal-weather-station/dashboard?ID=IVICTORI324

It all depends on your software as to what they publish online, that said if you can get the raw data you can feed it into something like saratoga: http://saratoga-weather.org/index.php

My Oregeon weather station feeds into meteohub via a raspberry pi which then uploads the data.

Just curious, how would you get a Davis (or similar) station to send data, say twice a day via a mobile sim? maybe a small mid afternoon image?

UPDATE: Answered my own question:

Bit 'over the top'...
Damn, yeah $9000 is a bit over the top.
You could probably do it quite a bit cheaper with a davis or similar, do away with the base console, use something like this:
http://www.meteobridge.com/wiki/index.php/Meteobridge_PRO to receive the weather data from the wireless sensors, then get it hooked up to the internet via one of these: http://www.tp-link.com.au/products/details/TL-MR3020.html

Goes with out saying there a variety of "crap "on ebay.
Get what you pay for / buyer beware comes to mind when scanning the options.

Agreed about the lightning detection for this.
Get that on my wz sub , which I do use quite often for work and beach safety gig. .
More so looking at this for bit of home data to compare with BOM
and maybe hook up / play around with the Wunderground....

Looks good CC.
Has all the basics and wi-fi connectivity.
Price is reasonable enough also.
Will have a bit more of a read up , includes Wunderground .
Then see if it mysteriously appears in the Office ....
:cheers:
