After dressing my daughter (multiple times) in shorts when it was only 40 degrees outside I decided I needed a weather station to tell us what the temperature was so I could dress her appropriately. So about four years ago I bought the La Crosse Technology WS-9611U-IT Wireless Sun/Moon Forecast Station with Oscar Outlook and have loved it ever since! Right now you can get this for $25.47 on Amazon ($20 less then what I paid 4 years ago!) and it ships FREE! The kids and I get a chuckle with “Oscar” and seeing what he wears each day plus it helps teach the kids about weather changes.
Product Features and Description:
- Wireless weather station with remote sensor and atomic clock for wall or tabletop
- 15 forecast icons Oscar Outlook character dressing for the weather as an example
- Sunrise/sunset and duration for 99 North American cities; moon phase display

Gardeners, hikers, beach combers, farmers, sailors, skiers, daily commuters and anyone who needs to keep an eye on the weather and temperatures indoors and out will love this wireless weather station from La Crosse Technology. With 15 forecast icons, the station makes it easy to plan for that outdoor barbecue, beach outing, or ski day, helping you decide what to wear and when to schedule.
With plenty of versatile features, the unit displays sunrise/sunset and moon phases for 99 U.S. and Canadian cities. A remote sensor helps you monitor outdoor temperatures and the main console displays temperatures and humidity levels inside. The remote sensor works from up to 330 feet away for monitoring temperature levels in the greenhouse, shop, and garage. It works great indoors too, helping monitor temperatures in the baby’s room, music room, and near plumbing you don’t want to freeze up. The main console receives data from up to 3 remote locations with the purchase of additional sensors. A great way to help kids dress for the weather, the weather station’s Oscar Outlook icon is always dressed appropriately for weather ahead, with outfits ranging from swimming trunks to a coat, hat and scarf, and other weather-themed accessories in tote, such as a beach chair, an umbrella, or a snow man.
The station’s precision clock receives signals from the U.S. Atomic Clock, automatically setting itself to exact time accurate to the second. A manual override setting lets you set date and time yourself for areas where Daylight Savings Time doesn’t apply (otherwise the handy unit sets itself for DST, too). A large button lets you toggle between an array of time and weather displays. A flip out table stand sets up quickly on counter, windowsill, or desk, or the unit hangs easily from any wall in the home or office. This weather station is compatible with La Crosse Technology TX29U-IT 915 MHz Wireless Temperature Sensor.
