La Crosse WS-2355 Weather Station

I have been using the La Crosse WS-2355 Weather Station for a couple of years, first in Sweden and now in Japan.

In the beginning of May 2018 I installed the weather station with its rain- and wind measuring equipment at my new house. The first six months there were problems with the temperatures, especially the maximum temperature. There is a paved road along the south side of the house. The house stands a meter or two away from the road and the heat rises up the outer wall and hits the thermometer. Even if there is no direct sunshine on the thermometer unit, it heats up quite a lot.

There were problems to find a suitable location without sunshine. Now, six months later in November 2018 I moved the thermometer unit to the north side of the house. During the summer there is just a short time in the afternoon when the sun shines between the house behind me and my house.

In the beginning all units (temperature, rain and wind) were mounted on the same mast. Now, with the three units placed in different places, the cables were not long enough. The wind unit sits on a 3.5 meter long pole on the 2nd floor balcony, the rain meter is mounted above the roof of the carport in the west and the thermometer unit sits on the north side wall about 150 cm above the ground. These three units were wired by flat (telephone) cables to the thermometer unit.
