Ambient Weather WS-5000 vs AcuRite Pro

So far the Acurite Pro is doing a very good job in most respects when compared to the  WS-5000. Temp, humidity, are in good agreement. This Acurite system does have a good barometer and is consistent with the WS-5000. 

Where the Acrite system fails is in the sampling rate of the wind speed and direction. It can not compete with the WS-5000 ultrasonic anemometer. The sampling rate is much to slow,  and the wind vane is to small. 

But still a very nice home weather station for only $109.

I had a rainy day to test the results of rain gage of the the Acurite Pro. 

Here is the current results after the rain has ended. 

The WS-5000 measured 0.69 inches of rain.

The Acurite Pro measured 0.69 inches of rain. 

The results can be also be seen on the weather underground links.

Pretty wild that the less expensive model is doing so well with readings.
