Any of you guys have a davis weather station or some similar? I've been thinking of getting one for months but might bite the bullet and do it. Any recommendations?

I love my Davis Vantage Vue.  Had one for probably 12 years now.  Does great on temperature and rain measurements.  Easy to setup and transmits to an in-house receiver with all kinds of cool graphs, measurements, etc.

You can also use their software program to keep records and do whatever else you might wish to do with it.

So does everyone believe we're ok for the most part in the triangle with regard to power outages?  Not really making any special plans for Sunday to cope as I just don't see it as a problem in Cary.  Just a messy day

I'm gonna gas up the cars, charge up the jump pack to keep some coulombs around for various devices DC and AC, put the tarp on the front stoop, and that's probably about it. Maybe I'll fill up the water cooler in case our community pumps lose power.

Living in Charlotte I am so scarred by WAA and mixing that I can't help but find the warmest looking model and assume it might be even warmer than that.  We've just had our hopes crushed too many times in the last 10 years.  

The best way to forecast winter events anywhere in the Carolina’s is to find the model with the warmest mid levels and roll with that

Honestly I'm hoping for that. The cold models are sleet, mean is ice storm, the warmest may push us over to 34 and rain around CLT. I'll take that.

In the storm thread: Raleigh this, Raleigh that. Raleigh, Raleigh, Raleigh. 

Yeah I don’t think that’s the reason it’s so quiet. Every suite of models has been worse than the one before it for like 4 days. Eventually it just gets depressing.

I had a Vantage Pro2 that I loved but then they stopped making the sensor for it and put out an upgrade. I have had nothing but inaccurate readings since. I ended up getting an Ambient Weather WS-2902C. So far so good. I love that I can see all the readings on my phone when I am away.

I've had that for over a year, and I've been pleasantly surprised with it.

The grocery store was a mad house here. All registers open and lines 10-15 people deep. Almost all the staple items sold out. Chris justice must be scaring these folks!

I knew this is was gonna happen which is why I went two days ago. Lol.

I have the Vantage Pro2 and I love it. Overall has been very accurate and has lasted a very good while. I think I got it in 2014ish I belive.
