Personal Weather Stations

Share your weather data with the rest of the world!
The Personal Weather Station (PWS) project allows anyone to purchase a low cost automated weather station and contribute the conditions to our website. We have thousands of stations in our world-wide network and the project is still growing!
It's easier to participate than you might think. Just follow these four steps:
  1. Purchase Weather Station Hardware
    The first step in getting a PWS up and running is to get the device that will monitor the weather.
  2. Place Your Weather Station to Report Accurate Readings
    In order to report accurate weather information, you must take care in deciding where to place your weather station.
  3. Install and Configure the Software
    Once you have a weather station, you'll need to select the right software to view and store your data on your computer.
  4. Upload Your Data to Weather Underground
    Now that your weather station has been set up and is communicating with your computer, you are ready to begin sending your data to us.
