Tonight, when I was in town, there was a lot of lightning flashing in the distance, and the sky got dark and kind of a pinkish color, but it didn't rain other than a few sprinkles. After I got home though, it started getting windy and there was a drizzle rain for a while, but nothing heavy.

I should have turned the radio on AM to see if I could hear static, but the lightning was far away though.

Yeah, wer supposed to have bad and maybe severe thunderstorms this weekend, due to two low pressure systems.

With radio static, it should work regardless of the distance. It did with me.
This Sunday, I *should* finally be purchasing my second bike, but there is a chance for thunderstorms... with 74 degree weather.
It's unclear whether the storms could be severe at this point, but during this time of year I'm willing to bet they should
reach severe criteria. After all, it is tornado season.

I didn't try it, but I had the radio on FM. But the sound cut out a few times, but I think it was the station causing it, rather than the lightning.

Well, be careful guys. There's not much chance of rain this weekend for here, but there is on Monday and Tuesday. But it's supposed to be in high 80s, this weekend, so it could cause storms anyway from the heat.

Use AM (amplitude modulation) on 530kHz. It gives you the clear static of lightning, and it does better results. ;-)

Interesting. So does that weather station have a separate anemometer and temperature sensor, or are there two sensors. My unit I had has the temperature sensor in the anemometer. Although I'm thinking of getting the Acurite color 3 in 1 station to replace it.

Yeah, it does have separate sensors. The Lacrosse weather station is modular and it picks up the ID number of each sensor, and sends the information data to the receiver. It also came with a water leak sensor, which has a built-in temperature sensor. Plus, its a WIFI weather station.

Before you mentioned it, I'd never heard of the guy...
Also didn't know he was on a TV show at one point (but I've also never had cable/satellite TV)

I might have already shared this in another thread, I don't recall. I have an AcuRite Atlas weather station at my house which replaced an older Pro 5in1. I need to fashion a mast for the sensor unit as the wind direction and speed is a little wonky from being on top of that fence.

Very nice unit there, thanks for sharing.

Love the display on that! Looks like quite a nice unit.

I've always thought that if I ever got a weather station, I'd put the wind sensor up on the roof  (not sure if in reality that would be a proper place for it though .lol. )

Usually wind sensors for true ASOS stations are about 30-33 feet above the ground. But obviously it would be hard to mount that high. But on the roof would be a good height, although it would be harder to change the batteries, in the unit. For temperature sensors though, it's usually about 5 feet above the ground:
