The La Crosse Technology WS-1516U-IT professional wireless weather station features La Crosse's new state-of-the-art wireless "Instant Transmission" technology, providing weather measurement updates every 4.5 seconds (6.5 seconds for rain)!

The WS-1516U can monitor a number of weather variables including wind speed and direction, rainfall, indoor temperature (note: this product does not measure indoor humidity), outdoor temperature and humidity, and barometric pressure. The weather center also includes time and date display, weather forecast icons, and user-selectable alarm settings for a number of different weather conditions.

The WS-1516 comes complete with wireless indoor console, temperature/humidity sensor, rain gauge, and anemometer. With this La Crosse weather station, the outdoor sensors are all wired together. To clarify, there are no wires coming to the inside display however the three outside sensor devices are all connected to each other, as shown in the picture above.

Note: We do carry a magnetic compass to help you orient your anemometer to true north. For more information on set up, please visit the anemometer page on our WeatherShack education center.

4 stars Weather Station
This weather station does most everything we expected, was really easy to install, and works great. The only feature we wish it had would be a back light function so we could see it in the dark. Other than that it is great.

4 stars Good product.
We purchased this to replace a similar station that lasted 8 years. Overall, we're pleased with it, although the thermometer is very sensitive to it's placement. It's easy to set up.

4 stars Works well
For those who said set-up was extremely difficult, I hope they have nothing more complex than an alarm clock. Set-up was easy and everything works. Still playing with locations for best results.

4 stars Our second LaCrosse unit
This is our second LaCrosse unit. The first one lasted for years and finally gave up the ghost 2 months ago. We became so dependent on it I simply HAD to replace it. It went together nicely, but we are having a problem with the rain gauge. Our thought is that it is too close to the the aluminum gutter and that's blocking the signal. This weekend we hope to relocate it to see if that's the problem. If not, I feel confident WeatherShack will help. I would recommend this product.

4 stars Good information
Had to replace a Sharper Image model that was hit by a falling tree. Very happy with this model, not too complicated and has all the information we want. Only wish that it showed rainfall constantly instead to have to press button to get that reading.
