    The temperature shield is barely up to the job and would benefit from an additional home-made enclosure to avoid inaccurate spikes.On some stations, wind seems to have a tendency to read wild spikes too but since they are like 150mph are easily spotted and discarded!Generally good value though unless you live in a very wild, icy and windy place like here where it would do well to last a year out.

    I have had mine for about 3 years now I have had to replace the wind speed sensor but other than that works

    well I bought mine new for £59.99 not a b grade, I still use it today even tho I use a davis vp2 on web site's

    I also use them with cumulus
