I don’t know if you have been paying any attention as to what is going on in our world. If not, I suggest you turn on your local news or weather stations and watch what is happening around you.

Many of us have been experiencing some wicked weather that has taken over our cities. Actually, it’s been beyond mind blowing seeing all the devastation left behind from some of the storms, rainfalls and tornados! The heavy rain pours have been a record high and flooding has occurred in many states.

It’s been so bad with floods that many states have declared a “State Of Emergency”! Even here in Michigan the rain pour has set a record high. My sister has been stating for years that we need to have an emergency preparation kit on hand along with stocking up with water and food.

That’s why when I heard about ACU-RITE, I was so ready to reach out to them to see if I could receive a few of their products to have on hand just in case we needed a few things to help us stay tune to what’s happening around us when the weather gets wicked again and when we lose power.

ACU-Rite was kind enough to send us the Pro 5-in-1 Weather Station with Wind, Rain & BONUS Weather Radio / Flashlight.

Now let me say, seeing this system at first hand definitely piqued my interest as to how it would work.

The Pro 5-in-1 Weather Station with Wind, Rain & BONUS Weather Radio / Flashlight is just as fascinating as it sounds.  We can now keep up with weather predictions and pinpoint accuracy right from our own backyard.  I know you are wondering how do this system works: The AcuRite Professional Weather Station uses patented Self-Calibrating Technology to provide your personal forecast of 12 to 24-hour weather conditions. Self-Calibrating Forecasting is generated from weather data measured by a sensor in your yard – giving you the most accurate forecast available for your exact location.

It took me no time to set up the The AcuRite Pro 5-in-1 Weather Station. It’s very easy to set up just add your batteries or you have the option to use a plug-in cord that comes with this system. Before long the station was reporting our current weather conditions, including indoor and outdoor temperature, humidity, barometric pressure, wind speed, wind direction and rainfall, all visible on a vivid color display.

I plan on hanging mine in my office since I spend so much time in that room the most. I love how within minutes the weather station was displaying temperatures so fast once powered on. I also like how bold and colorful the display show and how it informed me about the humidity in my home, that’s an important factor for me since both grandkids have asthma and sometimes the hot humidity can trigger an attack. This way I’ll also know when to turn on my dehumidifier so it’ll help the humidity air to flow better in my home.

Included with the Pro 5-in-1 Weather Station are two other small sensors, both sensors automatically toggles between monitoring temperature and humidity data in the room. Both wired sensors feature an extra-long cord to help you install anywhere that may be hard to reach!

Now I can’t wait to have the 5-in-1 weather sensor below mounted.  I don’t have a place right now to mount it because after reading the instructions it is suggested to install at least 33 feet high for the most accurate wind readings. I don’t have anything around me right now that high to mount on since I live in an apartment building. Soon all that will change since we will be moving closer to one of my sisters farm properties next year.

I have seen many of these 5-in-1 weather sensor mounted but I really never understood their purpose until now.

This continuous-streaming weather ticker keeps you informed of weather alerts. Indoor/outdoor temperature, wind direction, speed, chill, barometric pressure and humidity readings keep track of weather trends and displays a “feels like” temperature so you’ll know if you should grab a jacket before heading out. 12-24-hour future forecast is reliably accurate.

The self-emptying rain gauge is precise and mess-free. Self-calibrating for altitude. Icons for 14 different weather conditions. Includes AC power adapter. PC connectivity allows you to download weather data to your computer or smart device and view remotely. That’s because My Acu-Rite is a cloud-based software and connected device platform that delivers information and alerts about your local weather conditions. In order to setup the My Acu-Rite account you can visit their Knowledge Base to help get assistance in creating your account.

You need six AA batteries (not included) when you’re not using the AC power adapter. Sensor unit requires four AA alkaline or lithium batteries which are not included too.

Last we have another one of my favorites and yes this flashlight radio will definitely be put to use too. It’s called the Flashlight with NOAA Weather Radio

flashlightAcu-rite Weather Alert Radio w/ built in Flashlight & Hand crank radio will be a lifesaver and here’s how: The Acu-rite Weather Alert Radio w/ built in Flashlight & Hand crank radio will keep you and your family up-to-date on all weather alerts and weather information right in the palm of your hand.

Those storms, heavy rainfalls, and tornadoes that have been lurking around can now be monitored through this hand crank radio/flashlight! Just tune into emergency alerts, storm alerts, tornadoes, floods, disasters, amber alerts and public announcements with the AcuRite Emergency Weather Alert NOAA Radio with LED Flashlight.

This handy radio / flashlight combination is digitally tuned to NOAA Weather Radio (NWR), providing continuous weather information including warnings, watches, forecasts and all hazards 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Sounds a loud alert siren when emergency conditions occur.

Specific Area Message Encoding (S.A.M.E.) ensures you will only receive advisories, watches and warnings that are intended for your specific location. Warnings relevant to your local area scroll across the backlit LCD display and color-coded LED’s indicate alert type. Hand crank provides emergency power by recharging the batteries. Setup is simple. Power on the radio and you are ready to receive emergency alerts – there are no subscription fees or other costs. It’s more than accurate, it’s AcuRite.

I don’t know about anyone else but trust me when I say this is one of the best weather systems I have ever seen. Not only is it a great weather system, it’s the most accurate one I’ve seen in a long time. I’m confident that the Acu-Rite Pro 5-in-1 Weather Station will do its job in keeping us all informed about our weather. No more guessing, speculating or not knowing because continuous weather information including warnings, watches, forecasts and all hazards 24 hours a day, 7 days a week will be available to you and your family.

  1. I love to try to predict weather. This awesome instrument will help out in doing weather predictions for me. I give thumbs up on your awesome review.

  2. I love this. I have always been fascinated with the weather since i was a small kid. Would also be really cool teaching the kids

  3. Kayte CookWatts on

    I would love to know when there is a chance of rain because I ride in an electric scooter that shorts out when it gets wet!

  4. In addition to monitoring the weather, it is becoming just as important to monitor the weather INSIDE our homes. As we make our homes tighter and better insulated, we must monitor the temperature & RH (relative humidity) both inside and out, or we could be allowing mold to grow in our houses. I have used Acurite temp./RH products for many years. I find them to be quite accurate and reliable at a very reasonable cost. I give an Acurite digital Temp./RH meter to most of my energy efficiency clients.

    This weather station looks amazing! I always am obsessed with the weather from some strange reason and I love this one!

  6. I’d love a home weather station like this! Not so much because of fear of emergencies — luckily, we live in an area that’s not really prone to dramatic weather — but because it would be a cool way to sneak some science into my kids’ lives in a fun and entertaining way.

  7. This is amazing, I would give it to my dad. He loves keeping track of the weather, he would be ecstatic to own this weather station. Thank you for sharing your review!

  8. I have always had a passion about the weather this would hel p me learn and teach my daughter about it. Thanks for the chance to win.

  9. Living in Vermont we never know what type of weather we will have. They have a saying “don’t like the weather, wait 5 minutes”. And it’s usually true. I would love to have a system that is accurate to our location. I can get 6″ of snow and 3 miles up the road there will be barely a dusting.

  10. I like that the weather station shows indoor and outdoor temperature, humidity, barometric pressure, wind speed, wind direction and rainfall in a vivid color display.

  11. This would be awesome to have at my home! I love to follow the weather. The weather in my area can change quickly depending on the wind direction.

  12. I wanted to be a meteorologist when I was growing up. I have a manual rain gauge and a thermometer outside. I wish I had one of these weather stations!!

  13. This is such a cool device, I would love to have one at home! 🙂 The Weather Channel is never accurate so it would be nice to have something better to refer to.

  14. I would love to get my family one of these units. It would be nice to know about impending weather since we occasionally has Tornado watches and warnings.

  15. Very interesting set of weather tools. This would be great for my longer camping trips, although my father would probably appropriate it as soon as he saw it.

  16. This looks like a nice product that every home should have. It would be so useful in an emergency situation especially. I like to be prepared for things when I can be.

  17. Many many years ago I had a weather station that measured temperature, relative humidity, wind speed, wind direction, barometric pressure and probably a couple more measurements. It was all very low-tech (all analog) and most measurements took several steps to do. This setup would be great to have, since I have always been interested in the weather.

  18. This looks really handy and would provide up-to-the-minute weather information at my home instead of some distant airport or meteorological station. Thanks for the chance to win the ACU-RITE Pro 5-in-1 Weather Station!

  19. Lauralee Hensley on

    These would be wonderful items to use to teach young boys the joy of weather watching. Granted they’d need to be supervised until they were older so they would not damage the items, but still very much teaching moments available with products like this.

  20. tricia Maldonado on

    These are very neat. Would be so handy to have. It would make keeping up with weather changes so much more easy. Especially living in OR

  21. This product looks fantastic! This ACU-RITE weather station would come in really handy. I’m always curious about the weather and this would help so much. Thanks for the opportunity and great review!

  22. BEING PREPARED FOR EMERGENCIES IS SO IMPORTANT. WE HAVE BEEN THROUGH TWO STORMS THAT HAVE KNOCKED OUT POWER FOR A A WEEK OR MORE AT A TIME. THIS IS A WONDERFUL PRODUCT TO HELP KEEP YOU ON THE UP AND UP

  23. Fantastic, I’ve never seen one with wind chill, that would come in so handy and make it much easier to figure out how to dress before going out in the winter.

  24. Patricia Barraclough on

    We have wanted a weather station like this for several years. We are Red Cross disaster volunteers and weather plays a big role in our lives. After the morning news programs, we turn to the weather station and that is what is on during the day when we are home. We live on a ridge and have high winds. Often the local weather will report gust of 15 miles an hour and we are having winds at least twice that high. It would be nice to have accurate readings of what is happening.

  25. Tiffany Greene Elliott on

    My husband has always wanted a Weather Station! I would love to surprise him with it! I love that it is 5-in-1! Awesome that you can save battery power since it has a solar panel! Love that it is for indoor/outdoors! Thank you!

  26. (Prepare Your Home With ACU-RITE Pro 5-in-1 Weather Station with Wind, Rain & BONUS Weather Radio / Flashlight.) I remember having some crazy tornado weather here in Northern Illinois already this past March and having to go to our basement with our two cats a couple of times that month. Our family sure could use one of these great weather stations for such weather events in the future again-

  27. Boy it boy..great write up and I need this so much..
    Living in Florida we have crazy weather..storms, tornadoes, high winds..tropical storms and hurricanes..I’ve gone through about ten now..NO fun..no electricity for a month, loosing everything..no water, no air, no place to rent..no food..NO help!! not knowing anything happening..even when prepared.
    And, we are the lighting capital!
    Yet, I love Florida..not the storms..but, we do get nice seashells, gold and silver afterwards if lucky!

  28. I would love to be able to see locally….what is happening weather-wise…..it would be nice to have an alert system in my home so if I’m outside gardening, or cooking in the kitchen, I won’t miss any warnings or watches. My husband is a weather nut and a gadget guy, so he would love this a lot too.

  29. A complete need for this is within my hopes and dreams, the reason for the whole thing is that I am living in an area where we have had heavy rains, hurricanes etc, the idea for ownership comes in a bonus of sorts as I live in area where the majority of my neighbors are retired. A product of this nature would deliver that of an early message should we need to evacuate or if the forecast is clear! A separate benefit would go toward that of my local Boy Scout troop for which will learn Forecasting / Weather merit badge, the greatest of things is that I would even be getting to some Cub Scouts and you never know it might get them interested in the world of Environmental Science, another Merit Badge.

  30. This would be a wonderful product for us! We are in a very rural area and do not always have up to the minute info on weather in our area. This would make me feel much safer!

  31. This is so neat and very high-tech! My family is always very interested in the weather, especially my weather-obsessed grandsons. This would be so nice to have!

  32. Wow…I’m speechless. What an amazing product. I love how this lets you know what’s happening at your home. My local TV channels are from 50 miles away so what they are reporting isn’t necessarily what’s going on in my town. I love how easy this is to set up and to see what your local weather is like is awesome!

  33. I try my best to stay on top of the weather by watching TV and checking the weather apps on my phone, but I’ve never owned a weather station for my home. This weather station looks and sounds very impressive.

  34. elizabeth miller on

    This is a great product. My father in law is as we joke–the family weather man—it would be a great gift for him. He is fascinated with the weather.

  35. Where I live, we get hit by tropical storms and the occasional hurricane. We do have emergency supplies for a power outage. I had never seen one of these before. I love it!

  36. This sounds like an amazing system, I know for me, where I live we havn’t had any flooding this year, but I know we sometimes do during the Winter months so having this would be wonderful.
    @tisonlyme143

  37. My husband would love this. we have a weather station but this one is much nicer with a lot more useful features. He would love the self emptying rain gauge. I think this is a good idea for a gift.

  38. I’ve been wanting one of these for a long time and this one has everything that I wanted. What a great product. Thanks for the review!
