I looked all over for a weather station for my husband who is a hunter. He HAD to have one that has wind speed and direction. Most I weather stations online don't have either, only the indoor and outdoor temperature which any thermometer will tell you. I finally found this one on Overstock, and was pleased with the price compared to some higher end models. It has all the features he wanted, and seems to be happy with it. It took a little longer to install than I expected, but it wasn't difficult. Spend the extra few dollars on this model to get the wind measurements, it's well worth the little extra money.
