High and low temperatures, wind and precipitation can make a huge difference in the way your car handles on the road, even during everyday commuting. Having a weather station at a test track or your home will allow you to get a hyperlocal forecast, giving you the most accurate data for your situation. Don’t rely on general forecasts from your nearest airport. These forecasts can be inaccurate compared to the weather at your location, even if its only a short distance away. Our weather stations are shown at IBM trade shows around the world, since they are authorized resellers. With a RainWise weather station you’ll get the most accurate weather forecast and historical weather data available to you at a fraction of the cost of our competitors.
