A slim and sleek weather station, the La Crosse Wireless Weather Station is an entry-level weather station for beginners. This weather station offers a large, reasonably attractive screen, one sensor capable of communicating at decent range, and the ability to add additional sensors as expansion. With a very low price relative to more complex units on the market, it appears to be a great deal. However, the unit lacks sophistication compared to what is found in more expensive weather stations.

In this review, we will look at the Wireless Forecast Station by La Crosse Technology for what it is, consider it on its merits, and zoom in on who might find it useful.
