With only 5 shopping days left, this article is a little late but still… some good ideas
The price for weather equipment? Well, the sky is the limit!
Complete Weather Stations:
A complete weather station could run into the tens of thousands for a research-grade system. More off the shelf consumer level systems can range from $150 – $2000.
Then there are other things like thermometers, barometers, hygrometers, and just about anything you can imagine.

Some places to start right away, would be the Garden Center of your favorite Home Improvement store like Lowe’s or Home Depot (once these sites, search “weather” to see their catalog). They carry inexpensive weather stations like Acurite that are pretty darn good! Perhaps the most well-known weather shop online it The Weather Shack and they carry everything.
I am hoping that Santa brings me a portable anemometer so I can check the wind speed when I am out in the field (Hint, Hint, Hint).
Have a great weekend and if you haven’t seen the snow flurries out there, take a look as they should be clearing out this afternoon. Sorry, no accumulation here in the Piedmont.
NC Weather Happens. Enjoy it!
