The La Crosse Technology WS-1612 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-1612 weather station is capable of monitoring a number of weather variables including wind speed and direction, rainfall, 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.

Note: This product DOES NOT measure indoor temperature or humidity.

The WS-1612 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 magnetic compasses to help you orient your anemometer to true north. Those can be located under the "Accessories" tab shown above. For more information on set up, please visit the anemometer page on our WeatherShack education center.

5 stars A great product
this is our second weather station; the first lasted 7 years, taken out by a tornado. Very reliable, easy to read, and a nice finish on the casing. I feel lucky that the nearly identical product was available as a replacement.

5 stars Meteorological "Geeks" this is heaven.
It is embedded within my DNA. I simply enjoy tech "toys" and the wireless weather station is superb. Simply to install, easy to understand and best of all, I know what the weather is 10 meters over my house. Simply the best. Enjoy.

This is a great weather Station and it works great. We had the WS -151 weather station but it wore out after several years.

4 stars LaCrosse Weather Statiion
Unit works as advertised and was easy to set up. However, the instructions suggest that the main transmitting unit (with temperature and humidity) be placed under a north facing eave for obvious reasons but this makes it difficult, at least in my case, to find a suitable place to put the windspeed indicator and rain gauge particularly when they are tied to the main unit by cable. In the end, I sacrificed an accurate temperature to get good windspeed and rainfall data. I would suggest that the windspeed and rainfall units be wireless as well so that they can be placed appropriately.

5 stars Great product
This is the second station I have purchased. It is easy to set up and provides great data. A mouse chewed through the outside cord on the first one and all but impossible to repair the cord.
