AcuRite Weather Station 5 in 1
AcuRite Weather Station Display Consoles
Most AcuRite weather stations include their “weather ticker”. The weather ticker presents pertinent, real-time weather data in an easy to see fashion accross the screen so it can be seen without pushing buttons or searching around for it. It scrolls or flashes at the bottom of the screen, similar to a stock market ticker on the financial television channels. Some of the things noted on the AcuRite weather ticker include the 12hr and 24hr forecast, the feels like temperature, record highs and lows for tempearature and wind speed, current rainfall, and other weather alarms. It’s a cool feature and as far as we can tell, it’s only found on AcuRite weather stations.
